Please join us as we congratulate Dana Kuhns, who will serve as Scout executive of the Rip Van Winkle Council in Kingston, New York, effective January 13, 2020.
Dana began his Scouting career as a district executive at the Bucktail Council in DuBois, Pennsylvania. He was promoted to senior district executive at the Pine Tree Council in Portland, Maine, and then to district director at the Keystone Area Council (now known as the Birth of Freedom Council) in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. He was later selected as Scout executive of the Chief Cornplanter Council in Warren, Pennsylvania. He moved on to serve as district director at the Northeastern Pennsylvania Council in Moosic, Pennsylvania, and then field director of the Washington Crossing Council in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.
Dana is an Eagle Scout who enjoys spending time with his wife and family, getting outdoors, and finds satisfaction in being a volunteer firefighter.
Dana and his wife, Joanna, have four grown sons. One of Dana’s granddaughters is currently registered as a Tiger Cub Scout.
Send Dana your well wishes in the comments below as he joins in partnership with the volunteers and staff of the Rip Van Winkle Council to deliver quality Scouting experiences to the young people of the communities they serve.
