Oliver is a 12th grade student at Seton Hall Prep. He is on high honor roll and became a member of the National Honor Society in eleventh grade.  Oliver is finalizing his college choices for this fall, he will major in pre-dental or biology. He plans to attend dental school after his undergraduate studies.

Oliver has been in scouting since he became a Tiger Cub in 1998. He earned all of the Webelo activity pins and the Arrow of Light.  Oliver crossed over into Troop 16 in Livingston in 2003. He has been an active Troop member and is currently serving as a Junior Assistant Scoutmaster.

Oliver became a member of Lenapehoking Lodge IX in April 2004. He has been a very active Brother, serving the Lodge in a variety of roles including, Ceremony Team Chairman, Chapter Chief, Lodge Treasurer, Vice Chief of Inductions and Lodge Chief. Oliver is a Vigil Honor member and a recipient of the Founder’s Award. Oliver has provided service at every Ordeal weekend since April 2004 and has attended each Section Conclave since his induction into the lodge. He attended the National Leadership Seminar and has represented our Lodge during two National Order of the Arrow Conferences, in Michigan State University and Indiana University.

Oliver attended National Youth Leadership Training in August 2006. He demonstrated leadership and enthusiasm as a participant and was asked to become a member of the youth staff for the following year’s course. Oliver has been a valued youth staff member for the past three courses, last summer serving as an assistant senior patrol leader. Oliver has also served as one of the youth staff members for Woodbadge Courses NEII 160 and 180. Oliver was a staff member for the council’s Trainers EDGE course in 2009.   

Oliver’s scouting experiences have been many. He has spent more than 150 nights camping and has enjoyed a canoe trek at Floodwood as well as a voyage at Florida Sea Base. Oliver attended the National Jamboree in the summer of 2005 and traveled to London to visit the World Jamboree in 2007. 

From the very beginning of Oliver’s scouting career he has been blessed with the highest quality of youth and adult mentors. As a young scout Oliver has looked up to many older scouts in Troop 16, Lenapehoking Lodge IX and NYLT staff members. Oliver would also like to recognize the many adult leaders who have taken time to help him succeed.
