Hall of Heroes
Many men and women have devoted time to mentoring boys and young men into Christ-like men and lifelong servant leaders. Some men and women go above and beyond to perform this most critical ministry. While they would shy away from receiving such accolades, we feel that it is critically important that we remember their example and strive to meet or exceed the level of commitment they have shown.* Please note that awards records begin with 2011. If you would like to submit information for prior years, please send us an email and we’ll make sure they are listed here as well.

The Medal of Valor represents the highest award a boy or leader may receive in Royal Rangers. It is presented to individuals who have saved the life of another at the risk of their own. This award requires approval from the national Royal Rangers office.
National Medal of Courage
The Medal of Courage is similar to the Medal of Valor in that it is presented to boys or leaders who have saved the life of another person. However, this award does not require that the rescuer’s own life be at risk. This award requires approval from the national Royal Rangers office.
