Farmersville Boy Scout Troop 310 will experience a change in leadership at the end of this year. After serving as Scoutmaster of the troop for the last five years, Kyle Odom will step down at the Troop’s next charter renewal, which takes place in December.
Odom said his major reason for stepping down is a desire to spend more time with his family.
“I put in five years, which is longer than the typical tenure of a Scoutmaster,” Odom said. “I recognized I needed to spend more time with my family and let someone breathe more life into the Troop. I’m going to miss it, but I need to shift my time so I can spend more of it with my family.”
Taking over for Odom will be Matt Baird, who previously served as Cubmaster for Pack 592 from 2017 to 2019. Baird was first introduced to Troop 310 back at the start of 2019, when Baird’s church group partnered with Troop 310. He joined the troop in 2020.
