We are thrilled to welcome Davy Greenlees in his new and vital role as Cascadia Council Commissioner. With a rich history of commitment to the Scouting community and an impressive professional background, Davy brings a wealth of experience and passion to our team.
Davy's journey in Scouting began as a youth member when he relocated from Maple Ridge to Mackenzie. During a challenging time in his life, while recovering from significant cancer treatments, he found solace and strength within the Scouting family. The support and acceptance he received as a youth member inspired him to give back, and he soon became deeply involved as a Beaver leader, Cub leader, and assistant Scout leader, earning his Wood Badge in all sections. His dedication continued as he became a Rover, completing his Wood Badge II in the Scout section.
As an adult, Davy has consistently worked with Scout Troops in various locations, including Mackenzie, Creston, Kitsalano, and Prince George. His other organizational volunteer roles have ranged from Group Commissioner to Area Commissioner, showcasing his leadership and commitment to Scouting's growth.
Davy's professional background is equally impressive, with 20 years of service with the RCMP in communications and community policing. During this time, he actively supported RCMP Vocational Venturers and Rovers. After retiring from the RCMP, Davy remained busy as a full-time real estate agent, part-time off-road driving instructor, and operator of a professional wrestling promotion and training facility.
In addition to his scouting and professional endeavors, Davy is a dedicated volunteer for various organizations, including his efforts in fundraising and support for the St. Vincent de Paul Society, regional director for the Four Wheel Drive Association of BC, providing maintenance and fundraising support for the GoodSir Nature Park, and i his previous role as Chair and logistics coordinator for the Canadian Cancer Society's Relay for Life.
Davy's commitment to Scouting has earned him numerous awards, including the Silver Acorn and the Award for Fortitude. However, his greatest satisfaction comes from seeing the youth he has mentored continue their Scouting journey into adulthood. Five section scouters within his current troop leadership team were once under his mentorship, along with the presence of several second-generation youth troop members.
Davy understands the unique challenges that each Section, Group, and geographic area in our Council faces. He is eager to connect personally with Groups and Commissioners, ensuring they receive the support they need to thrive.
With his wealth of experience, dedication, and unwavering passion for Scouting, Davy is poised to make a significant impact in his new role within the Cascadia Council. We extend a warm and enthusiastic welcome to Davy as he joins our team and continues to foster the growth and success of Scouting across Cascadia Council. Please help us welcome Davy to his new role within the CK3
