“Adrian's ability to succeed is a testament to someone who sees experiences as learning opportunities. He is equally at ease in a variety of community settings promoting scouting and its' ideals. I feel strongly that Adrian's skills in networking, fundraising and leadership set him apart as an applicant of excellence and he would prove to the best choice in your selection process…”
Paul Brock, Community Leader, and Philanthropist
“I am an Adrian Hackett fan. He is a high quality person of integrity and character. He
is a passionate advocate and champion of the Boy Scouts and the important role the
organization plays in helping to positively impact the lives of the young people it
Rob Summitt, Shared Health BCBS, Council Commissioner
"He spends time explaining the importance of Scouting and how the BSA executes its aims of responsible and practical citizenship, personal and moral character, and physical and mental fitness."
Scott Fosse, Cherokee Area Council Scout Executive
"While Adrian is very progressive when it comes to technology in the work place, he is a “meet you in person” executive, whose track record of recruiting top level volunteers is unsurpassed."
Eric Buchanan – Attorney, Board Member, District FOS Chair
“During this time Adrian’s continue commitment and ability to form and cultivate new relationships has been important in the success of our FOS campaigns. He has exhibited maturity and leadership during this time for both the staff and volunteers of the council. While we would prefer that Adrian continued his tenure with us, I feel that Adrian is prepared to take on the challenge of being a Scouting Executive
whenever that opportunity avails.”
Dan Henderson, Lieutenant Colonel, US Air Force, and Assistant Scoutmaster
"This was my 5th BSA Council in 11 years and I had unfortunately already learned that not all BSA Councils welcomed military volunteers, often because much of the leadership (both professional and volunteer) felt that you “hadn’t paid your dues in their Council”, and as such didn’t really welcome your participation above the unit level. Adrian was fortunately not in that mindset, and welcomed all volunteers, even if he knew we would only be around a few years."
Russell J. Eagle – President Eagle Digital, Past Board Members and FOS Table Host
“Adrian's gift is that he is able to deal with and communicate with people on a level that transcends status, background, education or age. He is able to do that at a very
effective level without is understanding or presumption"
“In addition to his strong attributes as a "people person", a problem solver and a strong leader, Adrian has a sharp business mind. As a business owner myself I know
that it is rare that someone outwardly and socially capable is also very understanding
of the financial aspects and details of a successful operation.”
Jim Ingraham, VP of Strategic Planning for EPB, and Past Council President
“I want to call special attention to Adrian’s knowledge of camp operations and management. The Council’s Skymont Camp Programs have dramatically improved in attendance and Scout Master feedback over his years of service.”
