Boy Scouts Recognize Former CFO Jim Flaws for Community Service
Corning’s former Vice Chairman and CFO Jim Flaws and his wife, Marcia Weber, were honored as co-recipients of the Five Rivers Council, Boy Scouts of America’s Distinguished Citizen Award. The award recognizes individuals and couples for service to the community and for upholding the principles of the Boy Scouts of America.
Weber is the executive director of Southern Tier Central Regional Planning and Development Board and has served many organizations including Planned Parenthood of the Southern Finger Lakes and the Southeast Steuben County Library.
Flaws worked at Corning for 42 years. During that time, he served organizations including the United Way of the Southern Tier, the Corning Children’s Center, the Corning Museum of Glass, and the Corning Foundation.
“[Community service] helped me fine tune my core values, especially the importance of giving back. This, of course, is one of the values that the Boy Scouts of America instills in its members,” Flaws said.
