Please join me in welcoming Artis “Artie” Coleman as the newest member of the Greater St. Louis Area Council. Artis joins the council as the Gravois Trail District Executive working alongside Mike Eschbach, effective April 8, 2019.

Artis Coleman grew up in Pacific, MO. He is married to his beautiful wife Nicole of 11 years and they have two daughters Dori and Zoe.

Artis attended Missouri Valley College where he played football and majored in Recreation Administration/Human Services Management. While finishing his degree, Artis was introduced to the BSA through an informational visit to the Council Service Center for the Heart of America Council in Kansas City, MO. He remembers him and his classmates being impressed and somewhat surprised by the array of career opportunities offered by the Boy Scouts of America.

Artis began his career with Four Rivers Area YMCA in Washington, MO, where he currently serves on the Board of Directors. The past 10 years of Artis’ career has been in sales. His passion and roots are in serving the community. He looks forward to contributing to the team, and noted that he’s excited to become a part of such a historic philanthropic organization.

Please extend a warm welcome to Artis.
