Boy Scouts of America, Green Schools Welcome Atrion CEO Tim Hebert to Board of Directors

2/4/2016

Warwick, R.I. – February 4, 2016 –Though the Boy Scouts of America and Massachusetts-based Green Schools may have slightly different mission statements, they both unite around the common theme of empowering today’s youth to uncover their leadership potential.

The Boy Scouts of America, a long-standing values-based youth development organization, has been training young people to become future leaders for over a century, while Green Schools—a non-profit organization—is committed to bringing environmental programs and E-STEM education to today’s students and schools. And both organizations’ purpose statements are central to Atrion CEO Tim Hebert’s core values.

“These organizations speak to the imperative we as leaders have to unearth the special, unique qualities of today’s youth,” Hebert said. “It’s incumbent upon us to mentor, coach and advise the next generation of leaders.”

Hebert’s strong focus on leadership and personal development has attracted the attention of both organizations. This January Hebert was asked to join the Board of Directors for both the Boy Scouts of America and Green Schools. As a member of the boards, Hebert will be responsible for identifying innovative ways to continue to develop today’s youth.

For Hebert, a former Cub Scout and avid hiker, being able to get involved with the Boy Scouts was a no-brainer. In addition to being a member of the board, he will serve as VP of the Scoutreach Program, which gives special leadership and emphasis to urban and rural scouting programs.

“Scoutreach ensures all young people have an opportunity to join Scouting, regardless of their circumstances, neighborhood, or ethnic background,” Hebert said. “It provides positive role models for these boys and gives them experiences they might never have otherwise. Boy Scouts represents Atrion’s core values of leadership, passion and positive impact—plus I’ll get to do some hiking as well!”

According to John Mosby, Scout Executive/CEO of the Narragansett Council, Boy Scouts of America: “Tim is a dynamic leader in our community and we are pleased to have him on the board of the Narragansett Council. His passion for leadership is illustrated not only through his work at Atrion but also through his community involvement as a Year-Up mentor. We are looking forward to Tim’s support in the coming years, especially his efforts with our Scoutreach program that serves inner-city urban youth.”

Similarly, as a member of the Board of Directors for Green Schools, Hebert will have to the chance to take the nonprofit to new heights by specifically looking at existing fundraising efforts and determining how to generate the revenue to run and grow the organization.

For Robin Organ, Founder and Executive Director of Green Schools, Hebert’s commitment to leadership was the key drive in asking him to join the board.

“As leader of an organization literally trying to change the world for the better, I noticed several qualities in Tim that made me think he would be awesome for Green Schools,” she said. “A true leader inspires, collaborates, strengthens others, and knows how to build community. These qualities are all found in Tim.”

“Tim is a real deal,” she added. “He is passionate about a brighter future, youth, education, nature, STEM, innovation, personal growth, community and business. I am truly honored Tim accepted a seat on our board, and I look forward to soaking up and collaborating with him for a greener and brighter future for all!”
