Scott Beauparlant Empowers The Community One Endeavor At A Time
By Dylan Roche
Scott Beauparlant wears many hats as a member of the community: family man, business owner, coach and volunteer. A resident of the Severna Park area for nearly 20 years, Beauparlant has become an integral part of significant local traditions like Green Hornets athletics, the Independence Day Parade and Festival, and Earleigh Heights VFCs annual carnival. With the summer season in full swing, he is busy with many volunteer projects throughout the community.
After growing up in New York, Beauparlant came to Maryland in the 70s. He received electrical training at Associated Builders and Contractors Inc. in Annapolis before establishing himself in the trade. In 1994, Beauparlant and his wife moved to Severna Park where they raised their three girls.
His leadership skills have proved to be a boon to his daughters and their peers as he coaches them in softball; similarly, his work as owner of Beacon Electrical Services Inc. has enabled him to give of his services to local events and activities.
In serving as an assistant coach for the Green Hornets 12U and 14U softball teams, Beauparlant encourages youth and helps them nurture their skills. While many see coaching a sports team as a huge time commitment, Beauparlant enjoys the chance to guide the young athletes in a recreational pursuit they enjoy. I love watching the kids play softball and having fun, he said. For me, thats what its all about.
Recently, Beauparlant led the revitalization of the concession stand at Lynwood Drive softball field on Severna Park Middle Schools campus. Just in time for the opening of softball season in April, the concession stand was established fully functional after being closed for 10 years. We put a lot of time into getting it open, he said. But a concession stand is very important to that facility.
Not only will players and families enjoy the concessions during games, all proceeds from the stand will go to benefit the program.
Beauparlant also gives to the community on behalf of his business, Beacon Electrical Services Inc. For several years now, he has donated electric power support for the Severna Park Independence Day Festival and the Earleigh Heights annual carnival. Without his generous donation, neither event would have the power to take place.
Working with Scott has been a great experience, said Linda Zahn, CEO of the Greater Severna Park Chamber of Commerce. He accessed the needs we have and the layout at Cypress Creek Park, and he has devised a great system for the festival. Hes a pleasure to work with, a true professional and great supporter of the July Fourth activities.
The time and energy Beauparlant gives to the community does not seem to daunt him. On the contrary, he expresses how important it is to him to be hands-on. Its good to donate to the community and help your neighbors, he acknowledged.
Thanks to Beauparlant and other volunteers like him, the community is able to enjoy a wonderful selection of events this month. The Severna Park Voice extends our gratitude to Scott and his company for their bigheartedness and endless contribution.
