Jim Scott was recently installed as Exalted Ruler of Maryville Elks Lodge No. 760.
“I look forward to leading an organization very involved in our local community," Scott said. " With the commitment of our dedicated members, we all look forward to a successful year."
Past Exalted Ruler Kermit Goslee presided as installing officer during the ceremony, which took place at Lodge 760 headquarters, located at 115 N Main St.
Chartered in 1902, the local Elks organization engages in a number of annual community service projects, including Hoop Shoot, a basketball free throw contest open to boys and girls ages 8 through 13.
Other youth-oriented initiatives include Soccer Shoot, the Antlers program and the Americanism essay contest.
