                           An Interview with Brad Nesheim, Scout Executive
    Earlier this year, the staff of The Tom-Tom
interviewed the new Scout Executive for the Heart of
Virginia Council, Brad Nesheim. Mr. Nesheim comes
to us from the East Carolina Council, where he was
the Scout Executive. Here is what he had to say about
his past Scouting career and his plans for the Heart of
Virginia Council and Nawakwa Lodge #3.

   What do you like most about Scouting? “I believe
Scouting is a very important program because it has a
positive impact on the lives of the millions of young
men who join every year.”

    What is your background in Scouting? “As a
youth, I was a member of Troop 25 of the Piedmont
Council in Gastonia, North Carolina. As an adult, I
served as the director of field service for the Atlanta
Area Council, then the Scout Executive for the
Chattahoochee Council, and the Scout Executive for
the East Carolina Council, before coming to serve
you.”

    Why did you choose to come to the Heart of
Virginia Council? “I liked the fact that the council and
the city of Richmond are situated close to the ocean
and the mountains. Of course, I had heard of the great
reputations of the council and your lodge, and I wanted                                                        Mike Menefee


to help them continue to grow myself.”                   the council’s Arrowmen.”

    What are your plans for the council? “I am                    What are your initial impressions of the lodge?

                                                created? This fine looking bunch of OA adults could be creating
                                                just such a list...or they could be swapping tall tales...you decide
                                                which.

            Fellowship
James E. West was the first Chief Scout Executive and served in that position for
more than three decades. The West Fellowship award is available for gifts of one-
thousand dollars or more to the Council Endowment Fund. This is one of the best
ways to ensure that the Heart of Virginia Council can continue to offer outstanding
programs and grow to meet the needs of the youth and communities that it serves.
