June 12, 2018

Nevada “Al” Kent has served as Area 3 president since 2015 and in various positions with the Greater St. Louis Area Council since 2004. He says his greatest achievement in his 30 years of Scouting came from his time in Brentwood, Tennessee, with “a very active BSA Troop 177 and watching my son mature and earn his Eagle Scout rank.” He says, “The BSA is truly the best character development organization for youth. I have been extremely honored to be a part of it.”

A Life Scout and a Silver Beaver Award recipient, Al has been a member of the council’s board since 2004 and currently serves as council vice president of programs and on the executive committee. He has also served as a council commissioner. In Brentwood, Tennessee, he was an assistant Scoutmaster and a Cub Scout and Webelos Scout den leader.

Al is retired from PricewaterhouseCoopers, where he was a managing partner, and is an adjunct professor of accounting in the Olin Business School at Washington University in St. Louis. He is a past president of the Nashville chapter of Tennessee Society of CPAs. He is a past board president and current board member for the Gateway Region YMCA in St. Louis and serves on the board of Variety, the Children’s Charity of St. Louis. Al has coached youth league baseball and soccer, and he enjoys playing golf, scuba diving, riding motorcycles, and hunting and fishing.

A member of the Windsor Crossings Church, he and his wife, Kay, live in Chesterfield, Missouri. They have three children—Andrea, Nevada, and Ashley—and three grandchildren, Violet, Esme, and Max.
