Longtime Biloxi Scoutmaster Named Outstanding Citizen

The Biloxi Lion's Club named A.J. Stanovich its "Outstanding Citizen" Wednesday.

Stanovich is a longtime scoutmaster and tireless supporter of Camp Wilkes in Biloxi.  More than 200 Boy Scouts attained the rank of Eagle Scout under his leadership.

During his introduction, Biloxi Mayor A.J. Holloway, described Stanovich as a "beacon of leadership" for his peers and for generations of young people in the city.

The Lions Club recognized Stanovich for his support of scouting and his dedication to various community efforts.  He's also an active volunteer at his church, St. John's Catholic.

A.J. Stanovich thanked the club for the recognition.  He joked about his longtime association with the Boy Scouts.  He says one young scout asked him if he had any clothes other than his scoutmaster uniform.

Stanovich accepted the award cup from Mildred Roy.  She is the widow of Jimmy Roy, who was named "Outstanding Citizen" in 2000.
