David Novak, chairman of Pathways to Adventure Boy Scout Council, made the decision to knight Bosak based on his continued support of boy scout activities. Novak said that the “Calumet Council, now known as Pathway to Adventure, had a program where if an individual made contributions to scouting of $2,500 for three years, or one donation of over $5,000, they would be considered a Knight of the Council,” and recognized as such. Novak figured that the best way to recognize Bosak would be to knight him.
Novak and Bosak both know each other through the Crossroads Regional Chamber of Commerce, of which Bosak is a chairman. Bosak was knighted by Novak for his service during a recent chamber meeting.
Explaining Bosak’s knighthood, Novak said that the Boy Scouts had previously been looking for locations to hold events. Skip Bosak was then asked to donate Pinewood Derby cars to all of the Cub Scouts in Merrillville and Crown Point. Bosak generously followed through.
In addition to this, Skip Bosak hosts a Pinewood Derby corporate fundraiser, at which participants can donate $50 in exchange for designing and racing a derby car. Skip also sponsored the 2014 Eagle Scout Recognition dinner in the area.
Bosak himself downplayed his honor, saying it was the Bosak family that deserved the award, not he himself. He said that the Bosaks have always encouraged good citizenship, supporting opportunities for local youth to better and mold themselves. He added the Bosak Auto Group was being honored, not him personally.
