As per BSA policy, our troop is run by the scouts.  Every May and November, we hold troop elections, where the boys select the Senior Patrol Leader & Assistant Senior Patrol Leader.  Each patrol also elects their Patrol Leader.  The SPL and Scoutmaster appoint our Scout Quartermaster, Chaplains Aide, Scribe, Historian, and Librarian, as well as Den Chiefs to assist our feeder packs.

Our current leadership:

  • Senior Patrol Leader – Charlie W.
  • Assistant Patrol Leader -Tyler S.
  • Scribe – James D.
  • Troop Guide – Johnny D., Ben B., Jordi B.
  • Librarian – Charlie W.
  • Quartermaster – Samson H.
  • Chaplain’s aid – Jordan P.
  • Historian – Crockett H.
