MSA president receives Boy Scouts award

By The Tri-City HeraldJune 8, 2013 

Frank Armijo, the president of Mission Support Alliance at Hanford, has been given the 2013 North Star Award by the Boy Scouts of America Blue Mountain Council.

The award recognizes people making significant contributions to the community and to build youth character.

Armijo led efforts to turn Washington State University Tri-Cities into a four-year institution and co-founded the Hispanic Academic Achievers Program, which has provided more than $2 million in scholarships in the Mid-Columbia, said Rep. Doc Hastings, R-Wash., in a video message when the award was presented.

"Frank exemplifies the core values of scouting in his work life and most notably in his dedicated service to others in the community," said Richard Szymanski, executive director for the Blue Mountain Council, in a statement.
