2015 Silver Beaver Class

Elizabeth Stoner 

Elizabeth Stoner began her service to the area in 2002, teaching First Aid certification classes for the Red Cross.  She started looking for something a little different, and began Scouting in early 2005 at the York District Cub & Parent weekend.  This didn’t scare her off, so she agreed to help with the Gold Rush event later that year.   She was hooked, and has worked on the Gold Rush event staff every year since, helping chair the event since 2009. 

She joined the York District Committee late in 2005 as a Member-at-Large, and coordinated FFOS from 2007-2012 and Popcorn from 2009-2011.  She began serving as District Activities Chair in December of last year.

She was nominated for the Order of the Arrow in 2009 and went through the Ordeal in August of that year.  She got interested in working with American Indian Affairs, and has served as Co-Advisor of that group since 2010.  She earned her Brotherhood in May of 2010, and was selected for the Vigil Honor in August of 2015, completing her Vigil in October.

She attended NOAC in 2012, and served on National Jamboree Staff in 2010 in the Subcamp 19 Commissary and 2013 with Food Distribution for subcamp-F. 

Putting her PHd to use, She has served as Palmetto Council’s representative on the Piedmont –Appalachian College of Commissioner Science Doctoral Review Board since 2013, reviewing the commissioner Doctoral papers for the 8 Councils that make up the college.

She went through Wood Badge in the Owl Patrol as a part of SR-1019 in 2010, and served on staff as a troop guide in 2013 and ASM of troop guides for 2014.

She earned the District Committee Key in October of 2009, the District Award of Merit in December of 2009, and earned the York District Howard Hunter Camping award in 2013 & 2014. 

Leaders know her as a caring individual who always strives for perfection.  Her tenacity has led many a project to successful completion.

Please join us in congratulating our second Silver Beaver of the class of 2015, Elizabeth Stoner.
