Michael Surbaugh to be 13th Chief
In an announcement from the Boy Scouts of America Wednesday, Michael Surbaugh was named the 13th Chief Scout Executive. In his role as the BSA's top professional, Surbaugh will help lead the movement during an exciting, important time for Scouting.

But he won't do it alone. He joins two volunteer counterparts: Dr. Robert M. Gates, national president, and Tico Perez, national commissioner, to form the National Key 3. Surbaugh will succeed Wayne Brock, who is retiring in October after a three-year term.
