Troop 45’s ’s Steven Grosskopf “Mr. G” became the most recent recipient of the John S. DaVanzo Wall of Honor Award Oct. 18.

He has held numerous volunteer positions at the Cub, Troop, District and Council level for the Boy Scouts. Mr. G, who has logged over 40 years in the Boy Scouts, also spent two years as president of the Theodore Roosevelt Council, beginning in 2015. A dinner in Mr.G’s honor was held at Jonathan’s Restaurant on Jericho Turnpike in New Hyde Park, where many of the scoutmaster’s former scouts and their families spoke on how the experience under MR.G’s guidance changed their lives, according to the Mineola Chamber of Commerce. As part of the award, a black-and-silver plaque of Mr.G will be on the wall in the village hall lobby where DaVanzo once sat at a desk and greeted those who came in.
