The Founders' Award was created by the Order of the Arrow to honor and recognize those Arrowmen who have given outstanding service to the lodge. The bronze medallion bearing the likeness of E. Urner Goodman and Carroll A. Edson is reserved for an Arrowman who demonstrates to his fellow Arrowmen that he memorializes in his everyday life the spirit of achievement as described by our founder.
Arrowmen were elected by secret ballot at the Fall Fellowship by all Arrowmen present. At least one award must be to a youth under 21 years of age.
The award was first presented
in the Otena Lodge at the 50th Anniversary Banquet on January 7, 1995,
in Comanche, Texas. The following Lodge members have received this award.
The last year the award was presented in the lodge prior to consolidation
with Kotso lodge was in 2003,
