Welcome Julie Evans as MVD District Executive
It is always heartening to know that there are many good people who want to make Scouting successful. This was obvious during the District Executive (DE) selection process. Members of the MVD Committee participated in the final round of interviews – and it was a hard choice since we had very strong candidates. But – we are absolutely elated at the choice of Julie Evans, who starts Monday, July 27 as Mountain Valley District’s new DE.
Julie Evans is a native Montanan, born and raised in Billings. She has an excellent background in Scouting as a participant and volunteer. She was a Girl Scout, and attended camps every summer. She worked as a camp counsellor during college, for a total of 18 years in Girl Scouts. Julie became active in Boy Scouts with her son. She served two years as a Webelos leader, and five years as Assistant Scoutmaster for Troop 649 in Belgrade. And yes, her son did reach Eagle!
Julie knows our District since she graduated from MSU in Interior Design with a Minor in Business. She has been working ever since at an Interior Design business in Bozeman. She has excellent business, organization, and management skills from her time in this industry and she is now ready to apply these skills to Scouting full time.
Julie is passionate about community service, and not just in Scouting. For the past 12 years she has served as an EMT volunteer on the Big Sky Ski Patrol and an American Heart Association CPR instructor. She brings to Mountain Valley District a heart for Scouting, knowledge of our community, diverse skills, and a commitment to serve youth. It is just a wonderful bonus that her interior design skills can be put to good use in MVD’s patch designs for upcoming events. So – welcome aboard Julie!
If you want to meet her in person, come to a special District Committee Meeting on Thursday, July 30 7:00 p.m. at the Scout Office.
