During the inspirational General Session, Ill. Brothers Ronald G. "Pete" Forrest and Richard B. Burgess received the Scottish Rite Medal of Honor. Sovereign Grand Commander, Ill. John Wm. McNaughton, 33°, was awarded the John James Joseph Gourgas Medal, the highest honor in the Scottish Rite in recognition of distinguished service in the cause of Freemasonry, humanity or country.
The culmination of the Session was the conferral of the 33° on 157 deserving Masons, followed by a gala banquet. Congratulations to our new Sovereign Grand Inspectors General. Eighty-three Brothers were elected to receive the 33° in Indianapolis, Indiana, on September 1, 2015.
