For his outstanding achievements and positive impact in collegiate sports, the Yocona Area Council is proud to recognize Jack Cristil as its 2012 Distinguished Citizen.  Cristil has been heard  on the Mississippi airways for over 60 years calling minor league baseball in Jackson, covering play by play for Tupelo High School and  Itawamba Junior (Community) College, but most know him as the legendary “Voice of the Mississippi State Bulldogs.”  Jack will be honored on February 23rd, 2012 at the annual Boy Scout Distinguished Citizen Dinner to be held in Tupelo at the BancorpSouth Conference Center at 6:30 PM. The dinner is being chaired by 2007 Honoree Bobby Martin, President and CEO of the People’s Bank of Ripley.  2001 Distinguished Citizen Honoree and former Ole Miss Chancellor Dr. Robert Khayat will introduce Jack Cristil as this year’s honoree.  Joining Jack will be Sid Salter, author of Jack Cristil: Voice of the MSU Bulldogs.  Former recipients of this honor include author and producer Sam Haskell, BancorpSouth President Aubrey Patterson, acclaimed author John Grisham, football great Archie Manning, former governors William Winter and Haley Barbour, Senators Thad Cochran and Trent Lott, former Yocona Area Council Presidents Felix Black, Henry Brevard, Rob Leake, Bud McCarty, Jack Reed Sr. and J.C. Whitehead, and “The Scoutmaster.” The Distinguished Citizen Dinner is by invitation only, for more information contact the Scout Service Center at 662-842-2871.
