Meet the Leaders

Cubmaster: Richard Carter

Richard moved to GA in 1991. He went to UGA and loves to fish. He now owns a business building ponds and waterfalls, is an avid outdoorsman and was in Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts as a kid. Believe it or not, he even used to have long hair!

Brian is an Eagle Scout from Troop 320 and a strong believer in the life skills that Scouting can teach to our young boys and girls. In today’s age of digital technology that absorbs everyone’s time, Scouting provides a great opportunity for kids to put that aside for a moment and learn about the great outdoors. Brian embraces the Pack’s motto of Taking it Outdoors at every opportunity!

David Barry has reconnected with Scouting with his son Dave, who joined Pack 1714 in 2017. David earned his Eagle Scout rank while growing up in Amarillo, Texas and moved to the Atlanta area in 2015.

Anthony currently works in the IT industry providing network and desktop support to businesses. He is also currently working on completing his Bachelor’s Degree in Aviation and aspires to be a commercial pilot in the near future.
