By RICHARD F. BELISLE Staff Writer MARLOWE, W.Va. -- William F.

laurae@herald-mail.com When Boy Scouts go hiking, the slowest person sets the pace for the group. In Troop 100 of Hagerstown, that person is usually Scoutmaster Jack McCarter Sr. At 77, McCarter may not be as quick as he used to be, but he still loves camping and spending time with "his boys. " The Mason-Dixon Council of Boy Scouts of America said McCarter is the oldest active Scoutmaster in the council, which covers the Tri-State area. He's guided his two sons and two of his grandsons to the rank of Eagle Scout and touched thousands of other lives along the way. One of the first people whose life he touched was Washington County Treasurer Todd Hershey, who said McCarter helped him overcome the loss of his father when he was in his early teens.
