McClurg has been active in the community for several years. He led the volunteer effort for the Baltimore Woods Nature Preserve renovation. He has participated in Habitat for Humanity and for the last few years he has been very active in the local YouthBuild project in Syracuse.
Scott is such a wonderful asset to our community, continued DeFrancisco. His dedication and commitment to the community should not go unnoticed. The Liberty Award is the highest honor that can be bestowed upon a civilian in New York State, and Scott's actions have shown that he is a deserving recipient. I am proud to honor Scott for everything that he has done for the Luchsinger family and the community.
