Join us as we congratulate George McGovern, who will serve as the Scout executive of Heart of Virginia Council in Richmond, Virginia, effective September 1, 2018.
George began his Scouting career as a district executive at Middle Tennessee Council in Nashville, Tennessee. He moved on to become a district director, field director, finance director, and director of field service in Nashville.
Later, he was selected to be the Scout executive for Flint River Council in Griffin, Georgia, followed by service as Scout executive at Gulf Ridge Council in Tampa, Florida. In 2015, he was promoted to the position of deputy regional director/Area 4 director in the Southern Region.
George is an Eagle Scout and Vigil Honor member of the Order of the Arrow who enjoys Scouting with his boys and watching them swim competitively. He also enjoys sporting clays, golf, and is a swimmer himself. He and his wife Karen have four boys: Wesley and Blake, who are Eagle Scouts; Garrett, who is waiting on his board of review to become Eagle #3; and Landon, a Tenderfoot Scout.
Send your well wishes to George in the comments below as he joins in partnership with the volunteers and staff of Heart of Virginia Council to deliver quality Scouting experiences to the young people of the communities they serve.
