Grand Knight – Scott Whitney

Our Grand Knight is elected to provide leadership to Council 13517. Through examples of faith, charity, and good judgment, he provides the model for council members to follow. His leadership sets a tone that is open and engaging, and that ensures our council’s growth in charitable outreach and membership.

Thank you, everyone for allowing me the honor and privilege of becoming your Grand Knight of IHM Council 13517. With so many past examples of exemplary leadership and Brothers in this Council, I am confident that as a UNITED team we will find success and prosperity.

Thanks to Brothers Ken Jones and Matt Pagni, I became a 1st and 2nd degree Knight on April 27th, 2006. My 3rd degree followed shortly after and I became a Sir Knight in April of 2014. To say this fellowship has been nothing short of amazing, would be an understatement.

Charity is at the heart of our work and our faith – and it always has been. For the Knight of Columbus, charity means supporting a virtually boundless variety of projects. We must continue to lead our family and community in faith and service. FAITH IN ACTION will guide us through our Faith, Family, Community, and Life projects.

Your Council Officers and I are here to Serve you and your families.

Vivat Jesus!
