I am pleased to announce the selection of Patrick Sherer as our new Scout Executive of the Great Trail Council, effective July 15, 2017.

Pat began his Scouting career as District Executive in Menasha, Wisconsin, serving as Camping Director and District Director. He moved on to become the Director of Development in Portland, Oregon in 2000, and then promoted to Director of Field Service in 2004 in San Francisco, California. In 2009 he was selected as the Scout Executive of the Potawatomi Area Council in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

Pat is an Eagle Scout, Rotarian, Wood Badge Trained, and a graduate of St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wisconsin. He and his wife, Mara have two children.

Please join me in congratulating Patrick as he joins in partnership with the volunteers and staff of the Great Trail Council to deliver quality Scouting experiences to the young people of the five county area we serve.
