He has a long and distinguished Scouting history including as a Cubmaster, Scoutmaster, Advisor, Committee Member and Commissioner. David is extremely proud of the many volunteers that continue to spend thousands of hours to make this program a reality, and thankful for the input and feedback of countless others in this new organization. He has three grown Eagle Scout sons and a daughter starting college.
