Washington State District 160 Member Recognized by Boy Scouts

IAM Local 282 member and Bremerton Metal Trades Council Steward Keith Ciancio, a Logistics Management Specialist from Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) Division, Keyport’s Platform Integrated Product Support Branch (Code 434), was presented the George Meany Community Organization Award by the Kitsap County Central Labor Council for his impact on the Boy Scouts of America troops of Kitsap County, WA on June 11.

The George Meany award recognizes Scouters who are members of unions organized under the American Federation of Labor-Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) for significant involvement with the Scouts in their communities. It is one of 20 different organizational awards presented by national chartered organizations.

“I am honored to be recognized for this award and proud to have helped deliver on the promise of fun and adventure through our various scouting programs,” said Ciancio. “I look forward to future success in helping our family scouting programs expand in Kitsap County.”

Presenting the award was IAM Local 282 member Rusty Grable, Engineering Technician (Code 322) at NUWC Division, Keyport.

“Keith is responsible for getting my family involved in scouting, so it was exciting to be a part of the award presentation to recognize his contributions,” said Grable. “Scouting is such a great program that teaches valuable life skills and provides a solid foundation for my boys.”

In addition to numerous scouting awards, Ciancio was recognized by NUWC Division, Keyport with the 2016 Outstanding Community Volunteer Services award.

“I began volunteering with the Boy Scouts of America in 2013 when my son joined Cub Scouts and have seen the amazing difference that volunteers make every day,” said Ciancio. “If every single person in the county volunteered an hour a week for a cause they believe in, the positive impact on our community would be enormous.”

This is the first time the George Meany award has been presented by the Kitsap County Central Kitsap Labor Council.

“Improving lives through community service and collective bargaining are the essence of the IAM’s legacy! There is no greater cause than sacrificing ourselves to help others to lead full and rewarding lives. My sincere and humble congratulations goes out to Brother Ciancio for his commitment to his community and his richly deserved award” said General Vice President Gary R. Allen.
