Our boys unit scoutmaster is J.D. Anson; our girls unit scoutmaster is Jen Grant.

Our incoming Charter Organization Representative is Beatrice Martinez. Our current Charter Organization Representative is Barry Schwartzman.

We have graduated 119 Eagle Scouts as of June 2024, including 115 boys and four girls. 

HISTORY

BSA Troop 941 originated when a group of Scouts and leaders split off from Pack and Troop 491 at Kendall Presbyterian Church. We formed a new pack and troop at Vineland Elementary School, now Vineland K-8 Center, and have enjoyed a great relationship with the principal and faculty of that school since 1972. 

FOUNDERS

The original Boy Scout Troop 941 founders were George Locus and Robert B. Ebsary, Sr., and the Cub Scout Pack 941 founder was Robert K. Adams (obituary).

AWARDS

Pack and Troop 941 have earned many awards in nearly a half century of serving the Kendall and South Miami area.
