Hi, I’m Beck Garnett. I am a Life Scout and Senior Patrol member of Boy Scout Troop 444 in The Heart of Virginia Council.

From 2011 through 2018, I sold over $200,000 worth of Trail’s End products and raised over $150,000 for local Scouting. I was the Top Seller in Virginia from 2014-2018, and I was Second in the Nation from 2016 2017. In 2016, I set the national record for the highest online sales in a year. I broke that record in 2017 and, again, in 2018, making me the Top Online Seller in the Nation from 2016 2018. In 2018, I reached my longtime goal of becoming the Top Seller in the Nation with over $88,000 in sales, setting new national records for total sales and online sales.

The popcorn fundraiser made it possible for me to contribute to Scoutreach in the Heart of Virginia Council.

Scoutreach provides young people who have limited economic resources with opportunities to fully participate in Scouting. I am grateful for the opportunity to provide these excellent scouts with new units, uniforms, a trailer, and backpacking and camping gear that’s necessary for high adventure outings. The popcorn fundraiser allowed me to provide a campership to Philmont Boy Scout Ranch in New Mexico for a very deserving member of Scoutreach Troop 442, and to send over fifty scouts from the Heart of Virginia Council to Camp T. Brady Saunders for a week of Boy Scout or Cub Scout camp in 2018.

In 2019, I had the opportunity to help six Scouts from Troop 442 in Manchester, VA fundraise for their unit and become Top sellers themselves.

I was fortunate to get to mentor them, and I am proud of their effort and accomplishments. They worked hard to send themselves to summer camp, earn college scholarship accounts, and fund their entire unit for the year. In 2020, Trail’s End invited me to share my experience and knowledge with other scouts across the nation through webinar trainings.
