The Boy Scouts of America National Capital Area Council will honor St. Charles Companies Vice President of Marketing & Public Relations, Craig J. Renner, as the recipient of the 2014 Good Scout Award on Wednesday, May 21, 2014 at 6:00 PM at the Jaycee’s Community Center in Waldorf, MD.

Zekiah District Executive, Geoff Thomas, explained the significance of the award, saying, “Each year the Good Scouter Committee, made up of previous recipients, solicits Charles County service organizations for potential candidates. These candidates are the unsung community leaders that represent the values of the Boy Scout Oath and Law and are making a difference in our county. Our 2014 recipient, Craig Renner, is another fine example of those qualities.”

Craig J. Renner has been with the St. Charles Companies since 2000, and came to the Company after serving as the Public Information Officer for the Charles County Sheriff's Office. Mr. Renner earned his bachelor's degree in political science from York College of Pennsylvania in 1986, and has lived in Charles County since 1988. Craig and his wife, Traci, have two daughters; Lindsay, a reporter with the Maryland Independent, and Kelsey, a senior at Clark University. Mr. Renner has served on the board of directors of numerous civic, charitable, business, and homeowners associations, including a term as president of the Charles County Chamber of Commerce, as chairman of the March of Dimes March for Babies, as chairman of the Charles County Children's Aid Society, as a board member of the Charles County Board of Social Services, and currently serves on the Charles County Charter Government committee.

"I'm humbled and honored to receive the 2014 Good Scout award,” said Renner. "I know the caliber of people who have received this award previously, and the lasting contributions they have made to Charles County. To join the ranks of those who have been so honored is very special to me."
