AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson Named BSA’S National President

The Boy Scouts of America’s National Council has elected Randall Stephenson, AT&T’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, as the organization’s national president. In this volunteer role, Stephenson will lead the National Executive Board, which guides the BSA as we serves 2.3 million youth members.

Stephenson – who will serve as the 36th president of the BSA, following former Secretary of Defense Dr. Robert M. Gates – will start his role effective immediately. He will serve two, one-year terms.

“I thank Dr. Gates for his vision and leadership these past two years, and I’m honored to build on his work,” said Mr. Stephenson. “The Boy Scouts of America remains one of the best character-building and leadership development organizations in the world. The values Scouts learn as young men – integrity, selflessness and self-reliance – are fundamental to a strong, healthy society. It’s no surprise that so many of America’s leaders, in every field of endeavor and from all walks of life, have Scouting in their backgrounds.”

Stephenson joined the BSA Executive Board in 2005. He became a member of the executive committee in 2008.

“It is a true testament to the strength and impact of the Boy Scouts of America that two extremely accomplished, successful and high integrity leaders, Dr. Gates and Randall Stephenson, volunteer their time to help guide our path forward,” said Mike Surbaugh, BSA’s Chief Scout Executive. “Thank you to Dr. Gates for serving as our National President. We will remain eternally grateful to you and your unwavering leadership and commitment to Scouting.

“Moving forward in our mission to serve America’s youth by teaching them leadership and developing their character, Randall is a shining example,” Surbaugh said.

Round 2 of Deweyville Support was a Success!

deweyville1a


deweyville2We supported the Deweyville community Easter Egg Hunt and served food to several hundred people.  The kids even got to have a helicopter drop plastic eggs from the air. There was also train rides around the lake for the kids.  It was a great day to relax, watch the kids have fun, and be normal for a few hours.

Once again, TexJoy, Zummo’s DeerProcessing and Robert’s in Orange stepped up with lots of support for these people. OCSP Special Angels Rodeo donated an entire pig for pulled pork!! It was smoked by Robert’s in Orange.

Special thanks go out to the Masonic team from Beaumont and Scouts from Three Rivers Council – Boy Scouts of America for providing support.  James and Cindy Dorris provided a pit to cook on and helped out as well.
