Troop 911 started in October of 1997 with 5 boy scouts and 5 registered adults. Our first Senior Patrol Leader (and oldest scout) was 11 years old. We have 37 Eagle Scouts as of Aug 2011. All of the original scouts that started the Troop are Eagle Scouts. We now have 44 registered scouts in the Troop.
Our Troop meetings are at our Charter Organization - St. Theresa Catholic Church, 705 St. Theresa Blvd., Sugar Land. We have a very active Troop. We meet on Monday nights at 7:00 PM (except the Mondays after campouts when the Scout Troop Leaders meet for the Patrol Leader Council). During the summer months (June through August) we meet every other Monday. We camp monthly and usually have one lock-in a year. We have a Pack/Troop campout yearly for recruiting purposes.
The troop has about 30 registered adults which include about 21 committee members, a scoutmaster, and 7 assistant scoutmasters. Additionally, Eagle Scouts from the troop help as Troop Guides or Junior assistant scoutmasters. Some of them have continued to help as adults and became assistant scoutmasters and merit badge counselors. Several of our adults have become Wood Badge trained and one has worked as a staff member for Wood Badge.
We have a Distinguished Commissioner, two Tomahawk Awards, District Award of Merit, OA Vigil and two Silver Beavers among our adults. The Troop has won many outstanding awards in and out of the North Star District (formerly part of Tomahawk District).
