Bill Bricker • 1992 Man of the Year
One of the other items I found in Bill Bricker's Board of Education records was some newspaper coverage of his Chamber of Commerce Man of the Year Award. From 1992. You can see how a faction of Winnetka was [and still is] in his thrall. In order to be selected, one has to be nominated. A long time member of the Winnetka Chamber of Commerce owns the local sporting goods store. He has also been the scoutmaster of Winnetka Troop 20 since 1964, four years before the first reports of alleged molestation by Bricker, a fellow scoutmaster of Winnetka Troop 18 in 1968. One can only wonder who nominated Bricker. And consider the irony.
