ORLANDO, Fla. (December 5, 2011) – William E. Ruffier, named partner with the Orlando based personal injury law firm, Dellecker Wilson King McKenna Ruffier & Sos, LLP, was presented the Lutheran Lamb Award by the Lutheran Committee on Civic Youth Agency Relationships (LCCYAR).  The national award recognizes Ruffiers’s 25 years of distinguished volunteer service as a Christian role model and leader for young people.  Having served various leadership roles within the Boy Scouts of America, including positions on the Central Florida Council Executive Board, Ruffier has been instrumental in fostering spiritual growth and leadership skills among Orlando’s young men for years. “I have known and served with Bill on various church boards as well as through Boy Scouts for many years.  His desire for building youth through faith-filled character shows in all that he does, and in how he lives his life.  I am extremely proud to have nominated Bill for this high honor, certain he will live up to the standards the Lamb Award expects and demands.  He is truly an asset to those around him and to the Central Florida community,” remarked Peter Krzyzak, long time friend of Ruffier.

Ruffier joined the Boy Scouts of America when he was 12 years old, earned his Eagle Scout rank at 16 and has remained passionate about scouting throughout his adult life.  As Scoutmaster, Ruffier has successfully guided dozens of young men on several high-adventure excursions including hiking trips through the Rocky Mountains and many other rugged remote locations.   “Boy Scouts is a great program because it takes boys from every background and forces them to work together.  Scouting develops their character and leadership skills and helps them explore and do things that they would never normally do,” explained Ruffier.  ”While many others are more deserving of this honor, I am humbled to receive it.”
