Garden State Council, BSA, is pleased to announce that Ernest D. Huggard, President and CEO of South Jersey Federal Credit Union, is our 2020 Distinguished Citizen for Gloucester County. Event Chairman Benjamin T. Griffith noted that Huggard has earned the respect and esteem of his colleagues throughout not only Gloucester County but South Jersey. Huggard further distinguishes himself by the civic leadership and service he has provided to his community over several decades. He retired from the New Jersey Army National Guard as a Lieutenant Colonel, following 28 years of service. He also served for 17 years as the president of the Galloway Township Board of Education.
Typically celebrated at a banquet, the Gloucester County Distinguished Citizen will be honored this year at an online celebration on Wednesday, November 11.
