Reck, assistant director of Greek life, leadership and involvement at Monmouth College and 2003 graduate of DePauw University, is "a key participant at the 2010 Boy Scouts of America's National Scout Jamboree," which is taking place this week in Virginia. An article notes, "Reck will serve as a copy editor for the event's Jamboree Today daily newspaper, which has a daily readership of about 50,000. He will work alongside both seasoned journalists and scouting youth members completing their first-ever newspaper assignments."

The text adds, "Reck, who has experience on a dozen Boy Scout summer camp staffs, is no stranger to working at a national jamboree. He served as an emergency medical technician in 2001 and has stayed in contact with fellow staff members from his first experience. He said he looks forward to networking with the 45,000 scouts, adult leaders and staff from across the nation who are attending this year's jamboree."

Reck is an Eagle Scout and was inducted into scouting's national honor society, the Holton Quad Full Bloom bx.JPGOrder of the Arrow.

"Many of the leadership development practices I use with students at Monmouth are derived from my time with scouting," he says. "Scouting, which shares the same central values as the Greek organizations I advise, has strengthened my work with those groups."
