Posted (edited)

Retired Rear Admiral Charles R. Kubic was recently elected as president of Tidewater Council.

In Kubic’s own words, “It is a rare privilege to work alongside the very best Scout volunteers and professional Scouters while guiding the development of our nation’s very best youth as they live the Scout Oath and follow the Scout Law each day on their way to becoming our nation’s leaders of tomorrow.”

Kubic began his Scouting adventure at the age of eight, as a Cub Scout in Greensburg, PA. He continued in Scouting throughout his youth, through a Boy Scout troop and high adventure Explorer post. Kubic took on many youth leadership roles, including Patrol Leader, Troop Scribe, Brotherhood member of the Order of the Arrow (Scouting’s honor society), Expedition Crew Leader at Philmont Scout Ranch, and Secretary-Treasurer, Vice President, and President of his Explorer post.

As an adult, Kubic volunteered with the Boy Scouts of America in Bangkok, Thailand; Madrid, Spain; Springfield, Virginia; and Virginia Beach, Virginia. His volunteer leadership roles have included Tiger Cub Partner, Webelos Den Leader, Cubmaster, Assistant Scoutmaster, Scoutmaster, Assistant Advisor and Advisor for Order of the Arrow chapters, Advancement Committee Member, Bayside District Chair, Executive Board Member, Executive Vice President, and now Council President.

Within Scouting, Kubic earned the recognitions of Silver Beaver, Eagle Scout, District Award of Merit, Arrow of Light, Ad Altare Dei and Parvuli Dei religious awards, and District Committee Scouter’s Training Award.
