General - We welcome Drew Bair to our Team Posted Jan. 18, 2018
Please join our council in welcoming Drew Bair as the new Three Rivers District Executive. Drew was born and raised in the Roaring Fork Valley and many of you may know him! He joined Pack 242 in Basalt in September 2000 as a Tiger Cub and has been involved in scouting even since. He served as the SPL for WCC Jambo Troop 904 in 2010. He received his Eagle rank from Troop 201 in Aspen in 2011 and was the first scout in WCC to earn all the available merit badges. Drew is Wood Badge trained and a Life member of NESA. He is a brotherhood member of Mic-O-Say Lodge #541, and has received the Scouter's Training Award, Adult Religious Award, and WD Boyce Award. He is also a James E. West Fellow.

After graduating from high school, Drew worked at Peaceful Valley Scout Ranch as the Nature Counselor, and then served a 2-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. After his mission, Drew entered Southern Virginia University where he was a member of the Division III football team, the national championship dance team, and the college's improvisation group. During the summer of 2015 Drew worked at Philmont Scout Ranch in the backcountry at Ponil. He graduated from SVU with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Family and Child Development in December 2017.

Drew, and his wife, Allie, are excited to return west and begin a new phase of their lives (and start their family, a daughter is expected May 2018). They are looking forward to helping youth and volunteers enjoy scouting and the outdoors.

Drew will be taking over as the new District Executive for the Three River District, oversee SOAR as the Camp Director, and direct Council Programs. Please join us as we welcome Drew to our team! You can reach Drew by calling 970-948-7780.
