DISTRICT COMMISSIONER

Although Rebecca can say that she became involved in Scouting because of her sons Andrew and Conor joining Pack 8 in Pittsfield, MA, the reality is that she married into Scouting. In 2013 she was asked to help pilot the Lion’s Program in the Appalachian Trial District. In the following two years her sons became Lions in Pack 8 and she a Den Leader. Since then Rebecca has become a Unit and Cub Scout Roundtable Commissioner and in 2017 was made Cubmaster of Pack 8 following Wood Badge.

Over the past seven years, Rebecca has worked to advance people’s knowledge of the BSA’s STEM Nova program by organizing and staffing an annual STEM Nova day at various local community venues, most recently completed William T. Hornaday Award Advisor Training. Additionally, she has helped staff IOLS trainings, was a Troop Guide for Wood Badge course N2-234-19, has attended the Philmont Training Center and National Camping School and has staffed Cub Scout Day Camps for the past five years, three of them as Program Director.

As a result of her hard work and dedication to Scouting, Rebecca has been awarded the District Award of Merit, the Cub Scouter’s and Den Leader’s Training Awards, the Commissioner’s Arrowhead Award, and most recently the Silver Beaver Award. When not volunteering for a Scouting event, Rebecca gives of her time as a member of the Stockbridge Grange as part of the Junior Grange Program and is an active member of the Stockbridge Congregational Church and its Service League.
