Please Welcome Scott Sorrels as our new National Commissioner

Please welcome Scott Sorrels as our new National Commissioner. Scott is not new to unit service, nor is his experience in Scouting limited to it. Scott Sorrels has served the Scouting Movement on the world, national and local level for more than 55 years including nine years as the first chair of the National Commissioner Service Team. He has been a key Scouter in Venturing, including serving as vice chair of the National Venturing Committee and founder of Winterfest some 46 years ago. He has served as president of Area 9 in the Southern Region, and continues to serve on our National, Northeast Georgia and Atlanta Area Council boards of directors. As a youth, Scott was a national youth officer in the Exploring program, the BSA’s coed teenage career exploration program. Scott’s service to youth has been recognized multiple times. He has received the Silver Beaver, Silver Antelope and the Silver Buffalo. He has been involved in International Scouting serving as the 2019 World Scout Jamboree co-chair. Most recently, he has been awarded the Bronze Wolf, the World Organization of Scouting Movement’s highest honor.!
