In an email today to DOI employees, Zinke had the following statement:

 

"I approach this job in the same way that Boy Scouts taught me so long ago: leave the campsite in better condition than I found it."

Well, given his current job and the issue of public lands, one can only hope that his Scouting experience ended before the councils started selling off their camps...

President Donald Trump’s nominee for Ambassador to Japan, Bill Hagerty, is an Eagle Scout.

 

... told those at the Friends of Scouting 2017 Williamson County Good Scout Event that being Senior Patrol Leader of his scout troop in Gallatin 40 years ago helped develop his confidence as a leader.

 

Hagerty, 57, co-founder of Hagerty Peterson & Company, a private equity investment firm, and Eagle Scout, who served as Tennessee Commissioner of Economic Development from 2011-2014 and on the Trump transition, spoke At Embassy Suites Hotel Cool Springs about how the skills he learned in The Boy Scouts of America helped him in his life and business career.

...

“I think the two points I made that Scouts teaches you leadership and confidence,” Hagerty said referencing his speech. “The leadership skills are all learned through the patrol method in Scouting.”

 

The patrol method, which breaks the scouts in to smaller groups that work together within the troop with its own leadership structure, helped Hagerty have the confidence get his first job at 14 and was named senior patrol leader in his Gallatin, Tenn., Troop at 17 which went to the BSA National Jamboree in Washington D.C.

...

“I think it’s the recognition of the investment that adult leaders placed in me as a boy,” said Hagerty who now works with his son’s troop. “It’s taken a lifetime to translate but I hope that the leadership abilities that I learned in Scouting as a boy will continue to guide me as I move on to Japan and try to represent our nation there to the best of my ability.”

 

“I didn’t think about it at the time, but as I look back on it was because I understood how to be a leader, how to listen, how to organize my thoughts, how to set goals and how to execute them,” he said.
