The Hiram Award Committee informed the Master that Brother Robert Scheeler, was selected to be honored as the recipient of the Hiram Award for 2018.  Brother Bob was raised a Master Mason on November 24th, 2003 in Pearl harbor Lodge in Honolulu, Hawaii.  He affiliated with Samuel Warren Hackett Lodge on November 1st, 2005. 

Brother Scheeler was unanimously selected by the committed because of his dedication over many years.  Brother Scheeler has been the Marshal of SW Hackett Lodge for over seven years and loves the position.  When asked if he would like to continue through the line to become the Master, he always responds that as long as he can remain Marshal, that is what he chooses to do.  Aside from being our Marshal, he was, in 2012, appointed as committee Chairman of the Finance and Budge committee.  In that capacity he brought Mr. Marty Estrada, a money manager, to assist Hackett with its lodge investments.  That choice was a great one as Mr. Estrada did a wonderful job as he not only stopped the continual losses of the other manager, but was successful in growing our small but important lodge account.  Brother Bob is very strong with his ritual and, when called upon, never refuses to help in any way he can.

Because of this dedication and continual work in and for the lodge, the Hiram Award committee selected Brother Scheeler as deserving of this prestigious honor. To be chosen the Hiram Award recipient is the highest honor that can be bestowed upon a Mason, aside from being elected to, and serving as, the Master of his Lodge. 

The date of the dinner and celebration will be announced and pictures of the event will then be posted..
