Yocona Area Council announces new leader
Randy Long, president of the Yocona Area Council of Boy Scouts of America, announces that Rick Chapman has joined the council as scout executive, effective December 1.
Chapman comes to North Mississippi after 20 years with the Gulf Coast Council in Pensacola, Fla., where he served as assistant scout executive in a council of approximately 8,000 Scouts. He succeeds Brian Stegar, who recently accepted a position in the Washington, D.C., area.
While attending the University of South Florida in Tampa, Chapman was introduced to scouting at a job fair during his last semester of school.
“I’m delighted to have the opportunity to advance and am looking forward to this new challenge,” he said. “I look forward to continuing the strong leadership and program success of the Yocona Area Council.”
The Yocona Area Council serves 12 counties – Alcorn, Benton, Itawamba, Lafayette, Lee, Marshall, Prentiss, Pontotoc, Tippah, Tishomingo, Union and Yalobusha. Council headquarters are in Tupelo.
The council is governed by an executive board of business and community leaders, representing all areas within its boundaries.
