WEBINAR WITH BILL SPICE

Bill joined Scouting as a youth. He earned the rank of Life Scout and was recognized

by his lodge with the Vigil Honor. After graduating from Ball State University in

Muncie, Indiana, he entered professional Scouting in 1960 as a District Executive in

Fort Wayne, Indiana. He later served as Scout executive in Evansville, Indiana, and in

Pontiac, Michigan. After serving five years as area director in the East Central Region,

he began his association with Philmont Scout Ranch in 1993. From 1993 to 1999, Bill

served as director of the High Adventure Division and the general manager of Philmont Scout Ranch. During his tenure, he was instrumental in the development of a close working relationship between the Order of the Arrow and Philmont. He helped to launch the OA Trail Crew program at Philmont. He understands the significance of this program to the Arrowmen, Scouts, and Scouters who visit Philmont. More recently, he has given support and encouragement to the development of the OA Northern Tier Wilderness Voyage. This program is offered at the Northern Tier National High Adventure Base in Ely, Minnesota. Bill retired from the Boy Scouts in June of 2000.
