Meet our Scoutmaster

Scoutmaster Brian Killebrew

I was born in Wichita Falls Texas and grew up in Fort Worth. I was active in scouting as a youth, earning my Eagle Scout award at 16 and was involved in Order of the Arrow. During my youth in Scouts I gained invaluable lessons in camping, canoeing, rappelling and hiking. These lessons gave me my love for the outdoors and my love for the program. I have two sons and was excited that I could rejoin scouting and share the adventures with them. Our primary role as Scouting leaders and adults is to help our youth develop the skills and leadership traits to become successful adults and contributing citizens. I have a strong belief in leading by example and servant leadership. I believe that creating an environment that allows the scouts to try, and succeed or fail in a safe environment helps create great leaders and instills valuable life lessons. In my adult life I have been an Assistant Den leader, Den Leader, Committee Member for the Pack, Boys Troop and the Girls Troop, and Assistant Scoutmaster. I completed the Wood Badge 135 course and received my beads while an Assistant Scoutmaster. I plan to continue the tradition and Troop 1776’s legacy of high participation rate in jamborees and high adventure base trips. I believe that challenging the scouts and keeping the adventure alive keeps them excited and eager to continue.

Meet our Committee Chair

 Hello, My name is Bryan Bartell and I serve as Troop 1776 Committee Chair.

My son Houston and I starting camping with Troop 1776 while in Cub Scouts beginning in the fall of 2018 and we were immediately drawn into Troop 1776’s Spirit of Adventure.  We officially joined Troop 1776 in early 2020, participated in Troop 1776 Winter Camp and immediately realized this is a BSA Troop that is very active with many engaged individuals from the youngest TTFC or Eagle Scout as well as many adult leaders. It was also at Winter Camp in which former Scoutmaster David Willie encouraged all of the new adult leaders to attend Wood Badge and encouragement continued from all of Troop 1776 adult leaders who were actively making personal sacrifices to enrich the lives and future of the Scouts of 1776.  

I have attended Wood Badge 133 in Aug of 2021 and while contributing time and effort to finalize the completion of this program I quickly realized the sacrifices of the adult leaders put many smiles on the faces of many young Scouts.I will continue to do my best within my time capacity to serve the Scouts and Adult members of Troop 1776. I will highly encourage all Adults to participate and sacrifice some level of their time contributing to the success of their Scout and Troop 1776.
