CANTON, Mass. (October 31, 2016) – Bank of Canton President and CEO Stephen P. Costello of Norwood was honored last week by the Boy Scouts of America’s Spirit of Adventure Council, along with Quincy Police Chief Paul Keenan. Both men were presented with the Good Scout Award at the 23rd Annual Quincy Mayor’s Good Scout Breakfast, for upholding the Scouting principles of honesty, integrity and commitment to community service.

“Today’s honorees are tremendous examples of the very best of both Scouting and Quincy,” wrote Quincy Mayor Thomas P. Koch in his letter of congratulations, “and I again congratulate them on this well-deserved recognition.”

Throughout his career, Mr. Costello has been an active member of the community. He has served as chairman and board member of both the Neponset Valley Chamber of Commerce and the Town of Norwood Economic Development Committee, and treasurer of the Canton Association of Business and Industry (CABI) and South Shore Economic Development Committee. He is also a member of the Quincy Chamber of Commerce.

“Serving and supporting our community institutions and organizations rewards everybody,” said Mr. Costello. “It’s what makes our communities great places to live and work. It’s something we can all do, at all levels. That’s the spirit of Scout Law.”
