Ronald S. Green today was named the Scout Executive/Chief Executive Officer of the Greater St. Louis Area Council, Boy Scouts of America. He is the tenth person to serve in the position during the 100-year existence of the organization. The council serves approximately 57,000 young people each year in 37 counties in eastern Missouri and southern Illinois and is one of the largest in the nation.
Green, 54, comes to St. Louis after serving six years as the Scout Executive in Columbus, Ohio. He will start on March 1, 2011.
“It is an honor and a privilege to be asked to serve this council,” Green said. “The Greater St. Louis Area Council is one of the most highly regarded Boy Scout councils in the nation. I look forward to working with the Executive Board and the more than 14,000 adult volunteer leaders and staff members who deliver our Scouting programs each week.”
Green replaces John M. Primrose, who retired last year after more than three decades of service to the Boy Scouts of America.
