Nick Shepherd’s Scouting Bio
I have been involved in scouting since 2016 when my son joined Cubscouts as a Bear (3rd Grade). Scouting has always held a soft spot in my heart as I have family members who achieved the rank of Eagle Scout and a father who has been very involved in the fundraising for the Boy Scouts of America.
Cubmaster – August 2017 – present
After a career change which granted me the flexibility to become more involved in my son’s scouting life, I was asked to take over as the Cubmaster for pack 687 at Bethany Church. I was hesitant at first as I wanted to take on a smaller role at first before taking on such a larger responsibility. At our second Buzz Up at Allgood Elementary I was convinced that I could make a difference in the scout’s lives. Since then I have helped in the planning and organization of the pack and training of the adult leaders. I feel very privileged to play a small role in helping our youth become better citizens.
