Owen was in attendance at the organization’s American Values luncheon on the 20th of March in Anniston, Alabama. This was where he received the award.

The Boy Scout Honor

The City of Anniston’s local Boy Scouts chapter,  the Choccolocco district, were the ones who presented Owen with the boy scout honor ‘Heart of an Eagle Award.’ This signifies an individual who shows “compassion for their community through leadership, character, and integrity.”

He received the Ellis Island Award for his charity work in St. Jude. Alabama. He has raised more than $800 million from St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

With Alabama’s collective efforts, they have spearheaded several disaster recovery fundraisers. That included a tornado relief efforts for Tuscaloosa, Alabama back in 2011 and for Jacksonville State University in March of 2018.

Owen expressed his gratitude for the award that he received.

“It’s a great honor to be recognized by the Boy Scouts of America. I admire the great people who make scouting a wonderful lifetime experience for our state and country.” 

He also snapped a photo and shared it on his social media account.
