Drew Doherty is leaving the Atlanta Area Council to pursue his career

Posted on Jun 30 2018 - 11:16am

Our hard working, multi-talented District Executive Drew Doherty is moving on from the Atlanta Area Council to pursue his career, and we wish him every success in his future endeavors.
In his nearly 3 years here in Silver Comet Drew made many friends and met just about all of our Scouters as he worked to make the District a great place for Scouts and Families to get the most out of the Scouting Program.

Drew, from all of us, Thank You for your support, dedication, and enthusiasm for Silver Comet Scouting.

Drew sends the following note to all:

Over the past three years, I’ve been blessed to work with some of the most incredible, generous and caring people I’ve ever met. I want to thank each and every one of you for all that you’ve given me even beyond Scouting. Your friendship, guidance and so many kind words will continue to stay with me as I continue to grow and pursue a new career.

Thank you. Y’all are truly awesome!
-Drew Doherty
