The Arbuckle Area Council Golden Eagle Award was presented by Pat Fountain and Brett Matherly to long-time Scouter, Ray Lokey in early November.  A special video was made of the presentation and can be found on our council Facebook page.

  John Raiford  Lokey was a third generation newspaper publisher, following in the footsteps of his grandfather, E.R. Lokey, and his father, John Lokey.  He began his newspaper career peddling his father’s paper, the Johnston County Capital-Democrat in Tishomingo, as a newspaper boy in the 1960’s.  He started working at the C-D after school on his 11th birthday, and he continued to work there until graduating from Tishomingo High School in 1972, where he was editor of the student newspaper.  

 As a youth Lokey was also active in the Boy Scouts, where he earned the Eagle Scout rank in Tishomingo Boy Scout Troop 100 and was a Vigil Honor member of the Order of the Arrow, in addition to serving as Lodge Chief of Wisawanik Lodge No. 190.
