excited to announce that we are changing the name of the district to Appalachian
this month the district committee requested that Scouters and Scouts submit
names for consideration for the district. We received 11 suggestions and
at the monthly Key 4 meeting 3 were selected for consideration by the
voting members of the district. The voting members of the Cherokee Pickens
District, District Members-at-Large and CORs, voted on the name change
at the regularly scheduled district committee meeting on Thursday, February
20, 2014 . The final vote was to change the name of the district to the
Appalachian Trail District.
