Savannah McMillan became involved in Scouting as soon as she could after having grown up seeing her cousin’s involvement in Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts and wanting to do the same things. She has been an ILSC instructor for the past five years, an SPL for NYLT, and a crew guide for NAYLE. She also serves as the youth representative for STEM at the High Adventure bases on the BSA National STEM Committee. She has served in various STEM-related positions for the Great Smoky Mountain Council, the 2013 and 2017 National Jamboree, a Philmont trek, and the STEM Youth conference at PTC and the Summit. Savannah has earned her Venturing Silver, Ranger, and Discovery awards as well as four Nova awards.

Outside of Scouting, Savannah is very active in vocal performance, having studied opera for seven years; she was voted Best Soprano in 2013 and 2015 and Outstanding Vocalist in 2016 for the L&N Chorus.  She is a sophomore at Carson-Newman University where she is majoring in pre-law
