Todd Huston
Motivational Speaker
W. Scott Sorrels
National Commissioner
Todd Huston has been featured in thousands of publications throughout the world including Sports Illustrated, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, as well as, the popular book Chicken Soup for the Soul, A Second Helping. He has appeared as a special guest on CBS Year in Sports, and interviewed on ABC, NBC, CBS, and other major national and international stations.

Todd shares his motivational story — one that will inspire anyone to believe they can overcome life’s many challenges. His presentation centers around an accident he had at age 14, where he died twice, and which eventually led him to having one of his legs amputated. He went on to do what many thought was impossible. He became a world record holder for climbing the highest elevation in each state, as an amputee, surpassing the able-bodied record by 35 days.

Scott Sorrels is an Eagle Scout, the highest rank attainable in the Scouts BSA program. He has been awarded the Vigil Honor from the Order of the Arrow and the William H. Spurgeon III Award.

Scott has served many positions within the Scouts at the unit, council, area, and regional levels. He has served as the National Commissioner Service Chairman, vice chair for the National Venturing Committee, the Area 9 president for the Southern Region, Venturing chair for the Southern Region.

Scott provides volunteer service and leadership to worldwide, national, and local nonprofit and charitable youth-development organizations, including his role as co-chair for the 2019 World Scout Jamboree.
