For Immediate Release

Lancaster, Pa. – Barley Snyder is proud to announce that its managing partner, Jeff Lobach, has been chosen to receive the “York Distinguished Citizen Award” from the New Birth of Freedom Council of the Boy Scouts of America.

Lobach, who attained the rank of Eagle Scout during his scouting tenure, has been a tireless volunteer and benefactor with both the Boy Scouts and with its regional New Birth of Freedom Council. He will receive the award at the 29th annual York Distinguished Citizen Celebration on May 18 at noon at the Yorkview Hall of the Willman Business Center at York College.

“Scouting and the Boy Scouts of America had a critical and lasting impact on my development as adult, as well as the development of my children,” Lobach said. “I’ve always enjoyed giving back my time to help the next generation of scouts.”

Lobach has logged countless hours volunteering with the Boys Scouts as a den leader and assistant scoutmaster in more than three decades of dedicated service time to the scouts and to the New Birth of Freedom Council, which governs locally over Boy Scout troops in six central Pennsylvania counties.

Already, Lobach has received the Boy Scouts’ Silver Beaver Award, the highest award the organization gives to a volunteer and which goes to a registered scout of exceptional character that has provided distinguished service within the local council.

He’s also been the president of the board of directors for the New Birth of Freedom Council and continues to sit on the board. During his time in the board, Lobach has helped oversee the rebuilding of Camp Tuckahoe in the Dillsburg area. He has sat on the national Boy Scout council as well.

In addition to volunteer service with the Boy Scouts, he also holds board positions at the York County History Center, the York County Community Foundation as the vice chair, the York Health Foundation as the chair and the WellSpan Medical Group. Lobach also has held various additional board positions with York County-based WellSpan Health, the biggest health care provider based in central Pennsylvania.

At Barley Snyder, Lobach is a member of the Business, Finance & Creditors’ Rights, Real Estate and Education practice groups and the Construction and Health Law industry groups.
