Nathan Pace’s Scouting history includes decades of service in several Boy Scout councils. On the local level he has served in a variety of roles, including Crew Advisor, Scoutmaster, Committee Chair, Charter Organization Representative, District Committee Member. An experienced camper, he has served on camp staff at 2 camps as a National Camp School Certified staff member.
An Eagle Scout himself, Nathan is both son to an Eagle Scout and father of 2 Eagles. His 2 younger sons are working toward Eagle.
An attorney in private practice, his community service includes former terms as a City Council Member in Kaysville, Utah, and membership on the Utah State Board of Bar Examiners, as well as ongoing current service as Assistant Public Defender in Orleans County.
In his practice he has worked as a law guardian in Family Court in multiple counties representing the needs of children whose parents’ behavior has brought court action. In his practice he offers dispute resolution, mediation, and family advisement.
In addition to Scouting and community service, he is deeply devoted to his faith, and has served his church in various leadership roles. Most recently he served as Bishop of the Lockport Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and his currently calling is to serve as President of the Buffalo Stake of the LDS Church.
President Pace’s leadership role in the Church and as an active member of the Iroquois Trail Council Executive Board helped him to facilitate a long-desired coming together of the Council’s mission with that of the church, which is to offer Scouts an amazing summer camp experience while also offering formal training to their adult leaders modeled on the training offered at the Philmont Training Center.
His inspirational leadership has helped to bring together a dedicated group of local volunteers who have poured heart and soul into launching the Zion’s Camp program at Camp Dittmer. Chief among the camp’s objectives is to teach troop leaders how better to help lead the Scouts to become better young men, better husbands, fathers, and leaders.
The Nationally-recognized Zion’s Camp program has had a transformative effect on the boys and men who attended, and has also helped to improve the overall program and infrastructure at Camp Dittmer, improving the outcomes for all of our local Scouts.
For his long service to youth and his community, and for his guidance, vision, and leadership, the Iroquois Trail Council is pleased to recognize Nathan Daniel Pace with the Silver Beaver Award.
