Message from the District Executive

Please allow me to introduce myself, I am Craig Overland, and I am serving as your new District Executive for the Attakapas District. I am very excited about meeting everyone in the district and getting to know your units. To give you some background on me, I have been employed by the Evangeline Area Council since Jan. 2007, serving the Chitimacha District (St. Mary Parish) from that date till Jun. 2010. I was a volunteer for 2 years before becoming a professional, serving as the Cub Master for Pack 12 in Berwick, as well as Tiger Den Leader, Cub Den Leader and Webelos Den Leader for Pack 300 in Franklin. I am Wood badge Trained, I have attended National Camping School for Outdoor Skills Director in 2007, and served in that capacity for 2 years; and Camp Management (Camp Director) in 2009, where I have served as the Summer Camp Director for the last 2 years. I have attended the Philmont Training Center District Key 3 Conference in Cimarron NM. I am also a Brotherhood Member of the Order of the Arrow, Atchafalaya Lodge. I am married and have 3 children, one a Cub Scout and one a Boy Scout. As a youth I was a Cub Scout in Bayou Vista, and earned the rank of Life Scout in Troop 44 in Morgan City with whom I attended the 1989 National Jamboree.
