Please welcome to the Powhatan community, Todd G. Bolick our new Senior District Executive. As our area’s local Scouting professional, Todd will be working alongside District Chair Inge Gedo and District Commissioner Eric Bullock as part of the Powhatan District Key 3 leadership team.
A northern Virginia local, Todd was born in Alexandria and grew up in Annandale, VA where he graduated from Annandale High School in 2006. In 2010, he received his Bachelors degree in Political Science with a minor in Communications from Christopher Newport University. While at CNU, Todd was active with the Marching Band, Indoor Drumline, and the Student Government Association.
After graduation, Todd served a stint as manager for local swimming pool facilities, then put his Political Science training to work as an intern on Capitol Hill, and as an associate at a public policy think tank in Washington DC.
In June 2016, Todd began living his greatest passion, Scouting, as a profession. Starting as District Executive (DE), in the National Capital Area Council’s (NCAC) Chain Bridge District, he soon moved on to server Colonial District as DE, then to Goose Creek in February 2019. Powhatan District is fortunate to welcome an experienced professional Scouter to its ranks!
Todd is especially of proud of his role in planning the multi-district, 20th anniversary Camporee, in the fall of 2018, that drew over 1,000 participants. With the benefit of his Scouting enthusiasm, support and organizational skill, Goose Creek, and Chain Bridge Districts ran very successful fundraising events in support of NCAC programs, local unit assistance, training programs, operations and more.
Outside of work and Scouting, Todd enjoys being in the outdoors (especially running, biking, hiking, and aquatics activities), watching movies, and spending time with his family (his nephew is a Tiger in the Prince William District!), and friends. He is also an active member at his synagogue in Alexandria.
Both as a professional and volunteer, Todd passionately supports what he considers the greatest and most consequential organization for youth in our country. He is an Eagle Scout with four Palms and has been a registered member of the BSA (in the NCAC) since he was a Tiger over 25 years ago. Todd has volunteered as an Assistant Scoutmaster with the Troop where he earned his Eagle, Troop 150 in Annandale, VA, since aging out as a Scout. He has additionally been active and involved with the Order of the Arrow and became a Vigil honor member in 2017.
Todd is excited to serve as the Powhatan Senior District Executive! He is looking forward to visiting the units and meeting and working with the wonderful Powhatan Scouts and Scouters! Feel free to contact him at email@example.com with any questions, comments, etc. He’ll also be at our upcoming Roundtable meeting on March 12th, so you can meet him there!
