Mecklenburg County Council
My name is Sophie Gainey and I will be serving as Vice President of Administration for SR Area 5. I have been involved in venturing since I was fourteen years old when crew 148 was started in Charlotte, NC. I have done a lot with my scouting career.
In the summer of 2016, I backpacked eighty miles at Philmont Scout Ranch, went to the National Jamboree in 2017, Venturefest in 2018, and this summer I will be attending the World Jamboree at the Summit. I was also inducted into the Order of the Arrow about two weeks ago.
My two main goals for this term is to increase communication throughout the area by continuing to build contacts and to put on a seamless leadership conference in January. I have almost all the venturing trainings needed for rank advancement included Mentoring, Introduction to Leadership Skills for Crews, Project Management, Goal Setting and Time Management. I look forward to providing service this term.

My biggest goal this year is to use my past experience with Legacy 5 to support Legacy 7. More than anything, I am here to support all the councils in Area 5 so contact me if you need anything.
