Notable Alumni

What you will find here is not a definitive list of the “top” or the “most important” Scouting alumni. It is a simple, informal way to share the stories of some of Scouting’s most influential people. Inspiration comes in many forms, so we’ve cultivated a few stories we hope can serve as inspiration for current and future Scouts.
