Wilton man named to Scouts board
WILTON – David McBee, a Wilton resident who has a lengthy resume of community service around the region, was recently appointed to the board of directors of the Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains.
McBee, a native of Michigan, spent many years as a Boy Scout before serving in the U.S. Naval Reserves. He is a graduate of Oakland University and Boston University, and spent several decades working in insurance and occupational safety consulting prior to his recent retirement.
A Vietnam veteran, McBee has devoted his time to various nonprofit organizations over the years. During his years serving the Greater Nashua Jaycees, he was voted one of the five outstanding presidents and earned the project of the year award.
McBee served on the board of directors of the Nashua Salvation Army; headed his district’s development of youth organizations in the Milford Rotary Club; headed his district’s Rotary Leadership Institute; and served as president of the Wilton Main Street Association.
McBee is in the process of developing a class for the Nashua Adult Learning Center. The class, Chasing Happiness, is aimed at promoting a positive outlook on life as a method of ensuring future success.
"People that are happy, regardless of their circumstances, are the ones that will ultimately obtain success," he said.
McBee said he’s excited to lend his expertise to Girl Scouts, an organization that has meant so much to his wife and daughter.
"This is the perfect opportunity to continue exercising my sense of community, but on a much larger scale," he said.
