Tomorrow night,  John Paul Scotch, will receive The Honesty and Integrity Award, a most highly revered award presented by Masonic Lodges across our state.  [Click here to listen to John Paul Scoth talking with Tom Pace about the award.]

The W.H. Booth Lodge No. 380 will present the junior from Northwood High School the award Thursday night, April 17th, 2008.

John Paul has always had a love for sports.  At the age of eleven, he suffered an eye injury that caused him to go blind in his left eye.  Not letting this barrier keep him away from his passion, John Paul began volunteering in various sports.  

As a freshman at Northwood High School, John Paul wanted to participate as a member of the football team, but was not released by his eye doctor to do so.  As a result, he became an intricate part of the football program under the direction of Coach Daniel Turnbow, as the football manager.  

John Paul's duties included preparing the water coolers for the team and filming all practices and games for coaches review.  He pays attention to detail by making sure that the players have everything they need, even if it requires him to get them a mouthpiece.  

Because of his outstanding commitment and service to the football program, John Paul Scotch was drafted into additional sports including baseball and basketball to perform similar duties. 

It's said that if one were to ask any player, parent, or coach about the honesty and integrity of John Paul, you wouldn’t have enough time to hear about this outstanding young man.

Additionally, John Paul is very active in his youth group at First Baptist Blanchard.  He has served as a volunteer for Vacation Bible School for the past several years, and also went on a mission trip to the border of Mexico with the youth group, where they provided Vacation Bible School for underprivileged children in the area and witnessed to others in the community.

It is because of these outstanding qualities, and his character that John Paul Scotch of Blanchard was selected to receive The Honor and Integrity Award  from the Masonic Lodge, W.H. Booth No. 380 in Shreveport.
