    I am a former member of Troup 364. I was a first Class Scout when I left Huntsville in 1966. I believe a Mr. Whitaker was our Scoutmaster. The summer before I moved to Texas was a rich year with some of the first hikes on the Von Braun Trail and something to do with Scouting virtually every weekend. I was also a member of Latham Memorial Methodist Church and I have fond memories of Scouting and fellowship there in Huntsville.

    Today, I am the Executive Director of the Montgomery County, AL Community Corrections Department. I have over 30 years of rich experience in police work and corrections. I am quite certain that my scouting experience helped me to become the successful person I am today.
