Please welcome Ryan Trefny, Southern Region Boatswain for the 2018-2019 term. Ryan will take over from current Regional Boatswain Savannah Cushman on June 1st.

Ryan is an Eagle Scout, a Quartermaster and a SEAL graduate who is presently serving as Southern Region Area 3 Boatswain. He is from Capitol Area Council Ship 911, SSS Response, which was just named to the National Flagship Fleet for the fourth consecutive year. As Regional Boatswain, Ryan will lead the regional quarterdeck and will represent Sea Scouts as a member of the Southern Region Board. Ryan has been very effective as Area Boatswain and has a lot of great ideas for how to grow and strengthen Sea Scouts in Southern Region.

Regional Boatswain Savannah Cushman says “Ryan has been an outstanding Area 3 Boatswain within the Southern Region. It is truly an honor to attend events he has hosted such as Sea Scout Academy. I can still recall the time the time his Quarterdeck Jack Otto (now our new National Boatswain) and Ryan Shaw introduced themselves. The moment I got to Star Base Galveston I immediately felt a part of the team. There was never a moment I was disappointed on how you conducted such a event. Ryan, you have grown within the years I’ve know you and I couldn’t be more proud.”
