Bill Gates will collect his latest honor at an event in Seattle on Tuesday.
The Boy Scouts of America is presenting Gates with its Silver Buffalo honor for “his deep commitment to improving the lives of the world’s most disadvantaged people,” according to a release today.
Gates — who became a Life Scout — is receiving the award from the Chief Seattle Council during a Tuesday luncheon.
Silver Buffalo awards have been given since 1925 to civic-minded people for their contributions and service to youth. Gates is among 12 recipients this year; others include ExxonMobile Chief Executive Rex Tillerson, the release said.
