Scott Meyer

Assistant Scoutmaster, Troop 39 for Boys

Being the youngest of three boys, Scott missed out on the opportunity to be part of scouts because his family did not believe they had the time to properly commit to scouting for my older brothers and in effort to not show favoritism he was not allowed to participate.

Scott began his current journey with Scouts when his two sons were in 3rd and 5th grade and they believed they were ready for the opportunity and challenge of scouting. The oldest son finished Webelos I and II in about six months,  the youngest decided not to be outdone and when he became a Webelos, he earned the super twenty in nine months.

Scott likes the outdoors, hiking, and exploring to name just a few. He is also a bit of a geek and is fond of some shows from the mid 80’s to the mid 90’s to this day. He tends to have a bit of a Slapstick style of humor. Shirley he can be serious at times as long as you don’t call him Shirley.

As a uniformed leader in the Best Scouting Experience in Chapel Hill he is pleased to see the growth of new scouts and families as they begin their first weekend endeavor thru that first full year. He also values the ability to be another adult for the mid-teen young men to go and be built up.

He is also a proud husband of the Troop’s Advancement Chair an Eagle Scout of Troop 39 and a Life Scout.
