Join us as we congratulate John Echevarria, who will serve as Scout executive of the Western Massachusetts Council in Westfield, Massachusetts, effective January 1, 2019.
John began his Scouting career as an intern at the Greater New York Council in New York City, New York. He moved on to become a para-professional, district executive, senior district executive and later district director with the Puerto Rico Council in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico. He was promoted to field director and later to director of field service of the Alamo Area Council in San Antonio, Texas.
As a youth, John never had an opportunity to become a Scout. For that reason, he is so passionate about making sure every youth has an opportunity to join Scouting.
John and his wife Mila have two older daughters, a son-in-law and a beautiful two-year-old granddaughter. They also have twin boys that have started the Scouting legacy for their family. They started when they were Tigers and are now Bears.
In the comments below, help us welcome John to his new role in Scouting as he joins the volunteers and staff of the Western Massachusetts Council to deliver quality Scouting experiences to the young people of the communities they serve.
