MEET JAY SCOTT
FOR BLUE MOUNTAIN COUNCIL
The staff and board of the Blue Mountain Council, Boy Scouts of America are excited to welcome Jay Scott as their new Development Director effective September 23, 2019. Jay’s role will help the council develop new avenues of fundraising through grants, special events, and community relationships.
Jay Scott was born and raised in Pasadena, Texas. He played football and baseball during high school. He graduated from High School in 1996 and joined the United States Navy the same year. Jay served four years on the USS Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier based in Everett, WA. He served two six-month tours to the Persian Gulf in support of Operation Desert Shield. Jay was awarded two Navy and Marine Corp Achievement Medals for his exemplary service. He was Honorably discharged from the US Navy in 2000.
After leaving the Navy, Jay moved to the Tri Cities, where he and his beautiful wife have four children. In his free time, Jay enjoys supporting all four of his children in their numerous sporting events that happen throughout the year. Jay also serves as the Executive Officer for the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association helping veterans in need. He also enjoys attending church on Sundays with his family.
In 2007, Jay changed his career path and began working in the educational field as a 21st Century Program Site Coordinator at Wahluke High School. His 12-year professional career helping kids began, and it truly became his passion. In the last 12 years, Jay has worked for multiple grant programs, including the 21st Century Program, GEAR UP Program and the Upward Bound Program. The most important aspect of his work for the past twelve-years has been the positive impact his programs have had on the lives of his students and their families.
Jay looks forward to helping chart the future of Scouting in our local community as he starts this new chapter working for the Boy Scouts of America, Blue Mountain Council. He is excited to be part of an organization whose patriotic roots run so deep in American culture and whose record for service and youth leadership development continue to lead the way for youth, families and communities throughout the country.
