Troop 766 at Rancho Santa Fe gathered on Jan. 9 to honor and thank retiring scoutmaster Chris Kwok, who served in the position from 2019 to 2022.

Kwok is an Eagle Scout and during his tenure 18 young men have been promoted to Eagle Scout: Will Wolpe, Baron Kahn, Max Meinert, Chris Do, Nicholas Sajor, Kian Chakamian, Sam Thomas, Nathan French, Rocco Cappetta, Daniel Skuba, Nick Sanford, Dane Caton, David Skuba, Nathan Pryor, Levi Stratton, Cooper Vincik, James Stutts and Ryan Shakiba. The squad “thanks Mr. Kwok for his dedication and service.”
