Meet our new Scout Executive Marcal Young

On June 19th, the Qupaw Area Council selection committee, headed by Council President Dr. David Briscoe, named Marcal Young as the new Scout Executive, replacing John Carman who retired on June 30. Marcal began his tenure as Scout Executive on August 1.

Marcal began his Scouting career as a district executive at New Orleans Area Council in Metairie, Louisiana. He moved on to become the senior district executive M/P with Ouachita Valley Council in Monroe, Louisiana.

He then served here in the Quapaw Area Council as Field Director, Assistant Scout Executive, and Director of Field Services, leaving to become Scout Executive of Caddo Area Council in Texarkana, Texas. He currently serves as Area Director of Area 8 of the Southern Region.

Marcal is an Eagle Scout who enjoys hunting, fishing, golfing, and spending time with his grandchildren. He and his wife, Sandy, have five children.

Please help us welcome Marcal to his new role in Scouting as he joins in partnership with the volunteers and staff of Quapaw Area Council to deliver quality Scouting experiences to the young people of Arkansas.
