Meet Jamie Larounis (District Director, Goose Creek District)
Jamie Larounis hails originally from Newtown, Pennsylvania where he journeyed through his youth Scouting trail culminating with Eagle Scout with the Bucks County Council, now the Washington’s Crossing Council. He has a political science degree from the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, VA, and served his college years as an Assistant Scoutmaster, and also the Captain for volunteer EMS for the City of Fredericksburg. Prior to coming to Goose Creek, Jamie started as the District Executive and later promoted to Senior District Executive with the Aquia District (Stafford County), where he motivated the district committee to membership and finance growth for 4 years. In 2013, Aquia District chartered the first Exploring Club in the National Capital Area Council, chartered to the Stafford County School District. Following this, he was promoted to District Director of the Aquia and Mattaponi (Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania, King George and Caroline Counties) Districts, leading the Aquia team to over 10% Friends of Scouting growth in 2016, and the Mattaponi team to achieve FOS growth in 2016, the first time in over 5 years. For the past several years, Aquia District has had the distinction of having the highest Journey to Excellence score in the council, and this year, Mattaponi district is projected to receive JTE Gold, the first time they’ve attained that level in their existence as a district. In addition to Jamie’s responsibilities as District Director, he is responsible for Exploring for the National Capital Area Council, and will serve on the 2017 National Jamboree Rescue/EMS services staff. In Jamie’s free time, he enjoys serving on several volunteer Boards of Directors, including Rotary, volunteering as an Advanced Life Support provider with his local rescue squad, as well as traveling, where he’s been cited as an industry expert in major media such as the New York Times, CNN and FOX News.
