Lodge Chief

Cannon Herring started scouting in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania with Troop 329. As he progressed through the early scouting ranks, he moved to Fort Mill South Carolina. There he was introduced to the Order of The Arrow where he and his father both became very involved. Cannon started off by being a chairman for different events, and then in 2021 joined the LEC as Vice Chief of Inductions. He then ran for Lodge Chief in 2022 and has since been the Lodge Chief of Skyuka Lodge. He plans to continue to help other scouts discover a passion for the Order of The Arrow, just as he did when he first joined.
