Boy Scouts of America Honor Mike Boudreaux

Tulare County Sheriff, Mike Boudreaux, received the “Distinguished Citizen Award” by the Boy Scouts of America Sequoia Council. A special dinner was held on October 17 at the Visalia Convention Center in his honor.

“It’s truly an honor to receive this award,” Boudreaux said. “I accept it along with the men and women at the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office who make my job a success.”

Sheriff Boudreaux’s commitment to the youth of Tulare County is exceptional. Not only does he fully support the Sheriff’s Explorers program, a branch of the Boys Scouts of America as a work-site based program, he created the Pathways Scholarship Program. This program gives his Explorers an opportunity to go to college and, after graduation, to be hired as Deputies in their hometowns for better community policing. Two of the five Pathways Scholarship recipients are now Deputies.
