New Scoutmaster

The Board of Directors of 465 Alumni, Inc. welcomes our new Scoutmaster!
On Monday night last, Mr. Jason Norred was announced as Troop 465’s new Scoutmaster. Information about him and his family follows below. Please be assured we are not losing Clay Limbaugh but regaining an Asst. Scoutmaster. Clay’s family and work obligations have recently increased, necessitating his move back to an assistant's position. The Board of 465 Alumni, Inc. are most appreciative of Mr. Limbaugh’s time and efforts spent in moving the Troop forward and expect to see him at all future Troop meetings.
The Alumni Board is also pleased and grateful that Mr. Norred with his extensive Scouting training and dedication has accepted the position of Scoutmaster. All expectations are for a seamless leadership transition of a seasoned and well known Scout Troop both at the District and Council level.

Please know that the Board is also appreciative of each Scouting family in choosing Troop 465 to further your son’s development. Thank you very much!

Jason Norred

Mr. Norred grew up in the Atlanta area, at the tail end of Generation X. As a youth, he was Life Scout and SPL at Troop 909, a cadet First Sergeant in a Civil Air Patrol ground search and rescue team and enjoyed the formative years of computer networks and video gaming.

He and his wife Rachel currently live in Hickory Flat, off of Sugar Pike Road. Their son, Luka, is twelve years old and a Second Class scout and Bugler with Troop 465. Their daughter Zoe is in her Junior year at Creekview High School and has a passion for graphic design and animation.

Professionally, Jason has been in Managed IT Services for 20 years and is currently the Director of Solution Development at PCM. He and his team are often called upon to rearchitect business processes and IT systems at major enterprises around the world.

As a scouting volunteer, Jason was a Cubmaster at Pack 4652 for four years and has also served units as: a den leader, a Pack Committee Member, Troop Committee Member, and Assistant Scoutmaster. He has served on the Appalachian Trail district committee for three terms, in charge of communications, serving in roles on the Program and Finance sub committees, and most recently as a Vice-Chair. Jason is also a member of the Appalachian Trail Commissioner Corps, serving as a Assistant District Commissioner for Roundtables.

Jason feels honored to have received the Unit Leader Award of Merit in 2015, and the District Award of Merit in 2017. He attended Wood Badge training as a 92-86 Beaver and recently served on Wood Badge Staff for course 92-91.

Jason is passionate about the eight methods of scouting and is a true believer in the magic of the Patrol Method.

GIVE to 465 Alumni Inc. to support Troop 465's sponsor.

  Serving youth for over 50 years, Troop 465 has had a proud heritage of molding boys into men according to the criteria listed above. Our Scoutmaster Emeritus, George Lingefelt, say's "If you want boys to become leaders, you have to train them and then let them lead", and thus began our "boy-lead troop" mind set. Clay Limbaugh is our current Scoutmaster and passes these skills on. In fact, Scoutmaster Limbaugh is only our 7th Scoutmaster since 1963.

Since 1996, the Troop Sponsor has been 465 Alumni, Inc., dba Friends of Troop 465, a non-profit organization specifically enacted to support Troop 465 both financially and philosophically. Troop 465 has a permanent Scout Hut, on over 3 acres, thanks to the generosity and foresight of 465 Alumni, Inc.

Troop 465 is unique because of the tremendous support from our members and their families. If you would like more information about joining troop 465, please click here.
