Muskingum Valley Council names new scout executive

| February 25, 2021

Muskingum Valley Council, Boy Scouts of America, has named Anne Herriage of Pleasant Hill, California, as its new scout executive. She will be the council’s first woman director in its 100-plus year history.

Herriage has more than 25 years’ experience with the BSA. She is currently employed as senior director of development for the Golden Gate Area Council in California, where she uses her talents in all facets of operations, capital and endowment fundraising, membership, and programming.

“As scout executive, I plan to cultivate internal and external community networks to advance the mission and movement of scouting: To serve the youth, families, and our communities,” she said.

Herriage is replacing Ed Mulholland, who retired after 11 years with the council. She will assume her new role on April 1.

“Anne’s record is impressive,” said Council President Amy Pinson. “She has been extremely successful in building, nurturing, and developing relationships that benefited her council. I’m sure we will see the same successes here.”

Herriage’s career with Boy Scouts of America began in 1995 as a district executive for the Pony Express Council in Missouri. She literally followed the Pony Express Trail all the way to California as she advanced her career.

After leaving Missouri, she served Jayhawk Area and Quivira councils in Kansas. In 2010, she accepted the senior development director position for the Mid-Iowa Council in Des Moines. There, she managed a $13.5 million capital campaign to construct the Fred Maytag II Scout Center.

In 2014, she was promoted to Denver Area Council where she served as the planned giving and major gifts director and, later, the director of development. In 2017, she accepted an opportunity to serve as the senior development director for the Mt. Diablo Silverado Council in California.

Herriage says she treasures time spent with her family. She is an avid outdoor enthusiast who enjoys art, music, athletics, vintage cars and motorcycles, literature and travel. She loves good conversations, new experiences and sharing a good laugh together.

“People are a passion for me,” she said. “Scouting has afforded me the opportunity to interact with a wide array of personalities, backgrounds, value systems and communities. To work in collaboration with them to serve youth and families has been inspiring and rewarding. I never tire of making a connection with people and thrive on helping them realize their capacity to do good and to help others.”
