In addition to telling his amazing story, Mr. Scheibner will also share elements from his “Character Matters” series, which emphasizes virtues such as honesty, responsibility, love, compassion and commitment.
A book titled, ” In My Seat: A Pilots Story from Sept 10th - 11th” , also recounts the events leading up to Flight 11 and the subsequent death of Tom McGuinness in the seat that should have been filled by Steve Scheibner. (His book will be on hand for purchase and signing at the Torch Award’s luncheon.)

What are the Torch Awards?
The Torch Awards are presented to local businesses that have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to leadership, their communities and an organizational commitment to ethical practices. The Tri-State Better Business Bureau developed this program, believing these businesses deserve the attention of our local community.
