Mark Lybarger- Monson


Scoutmaster Mark Lybarger-Monson

Welcome to our community! I grew up participating in Cub Scouts from as early as possible, with my mom as the den leader. Our Pack was based out of Our Lady of Assumption in Claremont, CA. My best friend’s dad led us as Webelos. Unfortunately, I only remained in Boy Scouts for a short while. Since I grew up near the mountains, I hiked regularly while growing up and loved it…and have ever since. There is no better way to witness the glory of God’s handiwork, talk with family or friends, and exercise all in one. Because so many priorities are being simultaneously fulfilled, hiking is one of the few activities where I feel that I am not juggling priorities. 


I have “walked” with my son through scouts since first grade. His favorite scouting activity is backpacking. We have been a part of Troop 765 since the spring of 2019. I became an Assistant Scoutmaster in 2021 and the Advancement Chair soon after. My current role, since 2023, is Scoutmaster. I see us all as leaders serving in various roles to function as one body. For me, these are the T.E.S.T.S. of leadership:


Trust in God

Example: Lead by example
