Congratulations to Jim Westfall, who will serve as Scout executive of the Crater Lake Council in Central Point, Oregon, effective March 16, 2019.
Jim began his Scouting career as an exploring executive at the Des Plaines Valley Council in LaGrange, Illinois. He reentered as a district executive and later district director with the Overland Trails Council in Grand Island, Nebraska. He was promoted to district director of the Northeast Illinois Council in Vernon Hills, Illinois, and was then promoted within the council to field director and then on to assistant Scout executive.
Jim is an Eagle Scout who enjoys hiking, travel, technology and cheering for the Chicago Cubs.

Please join me in congratulating Jim as he joins in partnership with the volunteers and staff of the Crater Lake Council to deliver quality Scouting experiences to the young people of the communities they serve.
