Mark Manchester, Director

Mark has enjoyed a 20+ year serving youth through the Boy Scouts of America and is currently employed by the Crater Lake Council, Boy Scouts of America as the Chief Operating Officer in Medford Oregon.

Service to others is a very important for Mark. He and his wife, Gretchen, are always looking for ways to serve within their church family, and Mark is currently on the Board for the Medford Rotary Club. Through the Scouting organization, he is a member of the Order of the Arrow – the service arm of the BSA.

Mark has been married to Gretchen for 26 years and together are blessed to have a daughter who is a senior at California Baptist University. Lovers of family adventures, they enjoyed hiking with their dog Molly, and love the outdoors. Fishing is a definite passion of mine, and Mark is always looking for an excuse to pick up a fishing rod.

Mark is very pleased to have recently been asked to serve on the board of RPP, and looks forward to how best to fit into this talented group of caring people. Association with RPP was first realized through my Rotary Club, and most recently as the Scouts partnered up with RPP to collect food items for the program through the BSA annual Scouting for Food day.
