Learning about Scouting History is one thing, but what about spending a week at Philmont with Section leaders, notable historians, and OA brothers from across the country? Sign me up!
That’s what I said when I read about the first ever Summit devoted to nothing but Scouting history. I recently had the opportunity to attend the National Scouting Historian Summit at Philmont Training Center for the sole purpose of paying it forward. What do I mean by that?
Hi, I’m Ryan! I’ve been in scouting for 7 years and I live in Chandler, Arizona. I currently serve as YOUR Vice Chief for Section W-6W and I am also the President of the Western Region Area 6 Venturing Officers Association. I am an Eagle Scout and avid hammock-camper who loves wearing Tevas! I have taught the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards multiple times and I am a 2x NAYLE staffer and earned the NAYLE Gold Award. My passion for service extends beyond Scouting as I was the 2018 Rotary Ambassador to Kenya and the Executive Assistant Governor for Rotary District 5495, leading multiple national and international service projects with hundreds of thousands of Rotarians. I have been recognized as a Paul Harris Fellow and have received the Rotary Service Above Self Award. I graduated summa cum laude from Hamilton High School with the Class of 2019, and I attend the Barrett Honors College at ASU, studying Economics and Comparative Politics.
