Michael “Mike” Beer has worked for the Boy Scouts of America for over 20 years, in which he has moved 13 times throughout 3 states, including Florida and Georgia prior to moving to Lake Charles in February of 2015. In his career he has helped raise over $60 million dollars and has led his area or been near the top in the country in membership growth and expanding the Scouting program for most of his career. His mantra in life is to follow the Cub Scout Motto of “Do Your Best” and live by the Golden Rule.
He may be our “Big Boy Scout”, but Mike can be seen jumping-in serving many segments and roles throughout our community. In addition to volunteering in Scout Troops in Sulphur and in Westlake, he is the President of the Greater Lake Charles Rotary Club, outgoing President of the Lake Charles Symphony, serves on the board for the West Cal Chamber of Commerce as the Events Chair and serves in countless other organizations and causes, including his church.
Mike lives in the Edgemont neighborhood in Lake Charles and has 2 children: Trinity, who recently graduated from Sulphur High School, and Mikey, who is an 8th grader at Maplewood Middle School.
