Special Thanks

I would like to thank my fellow scouters, for 5 ½ years of excitement. It has been my honor to serve the Quanah Parker District and the Golden Spread Council, Boy Scouts of America. On February 15th, I will be leaving the Golden Spread Council and moving to Louisville, Kentucky to serve as the Director of Hispanic Scouting for the Lincoln Heritage Council. My wife and I are excited about this change in our lives, but know that the Panhandle is still our home and will miss West Texas tremendously. I thank all the volunteers, parents, scouts, and staff of the Golden Spread Council for the friendship, loyalty, and hard work.  Please continue to keep my wife and me in your prayers as we start this new journey.  Please contact Mario Perez (mperez@bsamail.org) @ 358-6500 for any questions concerning the Quanah Parker District
