Bud was a Cub Scout, Boy Scout and Explorer. He was a Boy Scout with Troop 2—one of the oldest troops west of the Mississippi still in active service; it is now part of Quivira Council in Kansas. As an adult, Bud was a Scout Leader. He helped form new troops in three communities. Prior to joining Hartsook, he was the Executive Director of Development for The Salvation Army of Kansas and Western Missouri. He holds a Doctorate from the Protestant Episcopal Theological Seminary, a Master of Divinity from Saint Paul School of Theology, a liberal arts degree from Labette Community College and a Bachelor's degree from Pittsburg State University.
