    Pinnacle Award

    The Pinnacle Award includes Recruitment, New Council Development, Round Tables and Council Reactivation. Each of the above areas were assigned a quota for each state deputy to achieve.

    When the state deputy meets all four of his Circle of Honor goals and attains 110 percent or more of his membership quota, he receives the Supreme Knight’s Pinnacle Award. For 2010-11, two jurisdictions met and exceeded all of their required goals.
