Chief – Nik Miller
What a fantastic lodge year we had this past year! With a new year approaching, I would like to take the time to introduce myself. To those who don’t know me, My name is Nik Miller and I will be serving as your 2018 Lodge Chief. I am an Eagle Scout of Troop 239 in Claridge. Since becoming an Ordeal member, I have held the positions as a lodge secretary in 2015, to being Brotherhood chairman in 2016. Then this past year serving as the Unit Elections and Camping Promotions chairman and now a Vigil honor member within the lodge. Outside of scouting, I am a catcher for the Jeannette Senior Legion baseball team. Although my favorite thing to do is attend lodge weekends, I also enjoy hunting and fishing. All of our chairman have been picked and we have completed a successful Lodge Leadership Development to provide you all with a quality lodge year. If you have any questions throughout the year or any suggestions to make, please don’t be afraid to speak up. All of our officers are willing to take any suggestions you may give us. We want this lodge to succeed just as much as you do.
Yours in WWW,
Lodge Chief 2018
Program-Vice Chief – Zach Lacombe
I’m very excited to be elected to serve as your PVC but some of you may not necessarily know me particularly well so I’ll tell you a little. I’m currently a life scout working on my eagle scout project in troop 150. Since I’ve been in the order of the arrow I’ve served as the elangomat committee in 2016, the AVC in 2017, and I will be serving as your PVC this year. Outside of scouting I compete on the track team at Connellsville School and attend the Connellsville Area Career and Technical Center for compute networking. Last but not least though I love a good cup of tea!

Administrative-Vice Chief – Josh Kopasko
Hi, my name is Joshua Kopasko and I am serving as your Administrative Vice Chief for the 2018 Lodge year. First, a little about myself. I am 17 years old and am a senior at Penn-Trafford High School. I am a member of Troop 239 based in Claridge PA and I am currently serving as the Senior Patrol Leader. I am also an active and founding member of Crew 237 based in Manor, PA. I have recently achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. I’ve been in Scouting for 12 years, ever since I was a tiger cub, and I love to go camping and to do service to help camp and others. I am a Brotherhood Member in Wagion Lodge 6 and enjoy coming to lodge weekends and other lodge events to do service and to share fellowship. I was most recently the Cub Activity and Conservation Chairman and organized the Spring Nature Walk last year. I am now working with others on organizing the council camporee, Campapalooza, and am organizing the demonstrations and displays for this upcoming event. I am excited for the lodge year to come and have high expectations for my officer team and chairman. I hope to impact the lodge in a positive way and will work hard to make sure that my chairman are setup to succeed during this year and that I am doing my job effectively as your AVC. I hope to see you all at weekends doing service, having fun, and sharing fellowship. And I look forward to a great year in 2018 for Wagion Lodge 6 as a whole! Yours in WWW, Joshua Kopasko
