TROOP 990 HISTORY

Founded in the "Ninth Month of the Ninetieth Year" (September 1990), Troop 990 is a Boy Scout Troop in the Westlake community of Austin, Texas. We are sponsored by The Knights of Columbus at St. John Neumann Catholic Church.

Troop 990 prides itself in being a Scout-run Troop, where the decisions and plans are made by the Scouts with the guidance but not interference of the adults, giving the Scouts a unique experience and teaching them valuable lessons of life.

 
 

ADULT LEADERSHIP

The Troop has benefited from active adult participation since its inception. Due to this participation, the Scouts have been able to attend a variety of Scouting activities. In addition to Scout involvement, Troop 990 depends on the energy of the adults to keep the program alive.

Adult leadership positions include formal and informal positions and include a range of time committment from occasional to weekly. See the "Troop Leadership" page under the "Help" tab for specific Adult Troop Leaders and their contact information.
