Boy Scouts Names Ruthann Eagen Berkshire County District Executive

PITTSFIELD — The Western Massachusetts Council, Boy Scouts of America, welcomed Ruthann Eagen to its professional team. She will serve as the district executive for the Appalachian Trail District, which serves the communities in Berkshire County as well as several of the surrounding hilltowns.

Eagen is no stranger to scouting. At 14 years old, she joined the Nassau County (N.Y.) Law Enforcement Exploring Program, a career-exploration program run through the Learning for Life division of the Boy Scouts of America. During her time as an Explorer, she gained leadership skills and attained the rank of two-star chief before aging out and becoming an adult advisor.

“I also got to experience scouting by watching my brother rise through the ranks of his troop to become an ordeal member of Order of the Arrow and earn the rank of Eagle Scout,” said Eagen, who hopes to bring her experience and knowledge from both Explorers and Boy Scouts to her role as district executive.

She has an associate degree in liberal arts from Nassau Community College, a bachelor’s degree in criminology from State University of New York (SUNY) at Old Westbury, and a business administration certificate from Nassau Community College, and she is currently working on her master’s degree in human services and leadership from St. Joseph’s College in Patchogue, N.Y.
