 Heart of Ohio Council, Boy Scouts of America

 For over 106 year the Boy Scouts of America has been one of the nation’s foremost youth service organizations. Founded on February 8, 1910, the Boy Scouts of America has continued to focus on character development, physical fitness, citizenship, with an emphasis on outdoor programming.   

Today our own Chad Schnitzler, Senior District Executive, is our speaker. Since 2011 he has served as the area Scouting professional for the Harding Area District covering Crawford, Marion, Morrow, and Wyandot Counties. Today Chad will speak about Scouting in Marion County and the National Council’s Exploring Explosion initiative and what is planned at the local level.

Chad is a lifelong Marion resident growing up in the Big Island area and attended Ridgedale H.S. (1999). Chad attended Marion Technical College, The Ohio State University at Marion, and completed EMT Basic certification and training at Tri-Rivers. His involvement in Scouting as an adult began in 2004 when he began volunteering as a Tiger Cub Den Leader for his eldest son’s den, and has held various volunteer positions since that time. In 2011 he was recruited to become a Scouting professional with the Heart of Ohio Council as a Para-Professional. In 2012 he was commissioned as a District Executive and in 2015 he was promoted to Senior District Executive.

Chad and his wife Paula reside in Marion with their two sons Keith (18) and Kole (11) and their dog Comet.

The invocation will be given by Rob Howard and Amber Wertman will greet you.

 "Service Above Self”


The Four-Way Test is a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships. The test has been translated into more than 100 languages, and Rotarians recite it at club meetings:
Of the things we think, say or do

  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
