Center for Scouting Staff & Hours Change

Things are happening at Twin Valley Council, and we are excited to announce the changes!


Erik Karre will be moving to the Mankato office with the new title of Field Director.  In addition to working with the Great Bend and Gneiss Neighborhoods, he will be working with membership and multiple other projects.  We are hoping to have him settled in Mankato by end of summer.

Melissa Walders is our new District Executive covering Cedar River and North Star Neighborhoods.  She is also handling a lot of social media for the Council.  Melissa comes to us from the Neveda Council with lots of Scouting experience.

Julie Brewer has taken a full-time position with Connections in Mankato but will stay on at Twin Valley part-time handling bookkeeping etc.  We will miss her greatly but at least we get to keep her part-time!  She begins her new role July 1, 2024.  

Jeff Kagermeier has joined the staff part-time.  During the summer he will be working with fund raising events and will take over the Scout Shop by end of summer.  Jeff has a long history of Scouting and will bring much experience to our team.  Jeff is a member of NESA, Cubmaster for Pack 130 and Assistant Scoutmaster for Troop 95.

Shelley Corry will move into the position of Office Manager and will handle the workflow in the office.  Having been with Twin Valley Council for 20 years, we’re hoping for an easy transition into the new role.
