Ham Murray Award
In 1985, the Alibamu Lodge created the HAM Murray Award to honor those Arrowmen who truly exemplify the spirit of the Order of the Arrow. HAM Murray perhaps best displayed this spirit. This award is given to one of the most promising youth members of the lodge. He cannot be a lodge officer.

James E. West Fellowship
James E. West was appointed to the position of Chief Scout Executive in 1910 by the founding leadership of Scouting in America. Under his leadership over the next 33 years, Scouting grew and matured into the program we recognize and enjoy today. West is credited with not only helping form Scouting but guiding, protecting, and nurturing the program through many critical challenges. There can be no finer honor paid to a Scouter than to be named a James E. West fellow, indicating that the nominee is in the same spirit and dedication to Scouting as West was. Those who are recognized by the James E. West Fellowship Award will cast their own “lengthened shadow” as they help ensure the Scouting legacy. Alibamu Lodge has honored these members as James E. West fellows.
