Troop History

Super Troop 197 is sponsored by The Westminster Schools in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. The Super Troop was founded in 1990 by Flash Corliss. The Super Troop is extremely active in the development of leadership skills, camping and hiking skills, and rank advancement for young men. The strength of the Super Troop flows from its abundant parent participation. The Super Troop has an enviable record of producing Eagle Scouts who become leaders outside the Troop.
