The Board of Directors of the Anthony Wayne Area Council is pleased to announce its selection of John Gliot as our new Scout Executive. John has been involved with Scouting for over 30 years, as a Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Summer Camp Staff Member, Assistant Scoutmaster, Explorer Post Advisor and for the past 16 years as a professional Scouter. John began his career with the Boy Scouts of America as a District Executive with the Keystone Area Council in Harrisburg, PA. He then served as the Council Program Director with the Central New Jersey Council in Princeton, NJ and most recently has held the position of Assistant Scout Executive with the Central New Jersey Council for the past five years. He will begin serving the Anthony Wayne Area Council on August 1.
John achieved the rank of Life Scout as a youth, is a member of the Wood Badge Eagle Patrol and is proudly a Vigil Honor member of the Order of the Arrow.

John and his wife Heather have three children; Nathan, who just completed his Tiger rank in Cub Scouts, Alex, who will be starting kindergarten in the fall and Sierra, who is three years old.

Need help pronouncing Gliot? Think "David and Goliath" and just drop the "h" in Goliath. That's it: Gliot. Practice it a few times then swing by the Council Service Center after August 1 and welcome John to Northeast Indiana!
