I was raised in Florence, Al where I was a member of Troop 75 and earned the rank of Eagle. I specifically remember at my Eagle board of review being asked what I saw as my future involvement in Scouting. My answer was that I enjoyed my scouting experience and would always support scouting and encourage my children to participate. My son Matthew is currently a member of Troop 100 and is at the rank of Life working toward earning his Eagle. I became Scoutmaster of Troop 100 in the summer of 2019. Luckily, I have a strong support system within the troop from both the boys and the adults. I am looking forward to working with the scouts and giving them the opportunities that Scouting provides.
