GLEN JEAN, W.Va. (AP) - The Boy Scouts of America have broken ground on a leadership training complex at their massive southern West Virginia grounds.

A news release Wednesday announced construction has begun on the addition at Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve.

The Thomas S. Monson Leadership Excellence Complex is expected to be completed by 2020. It’s named for the president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the Scouts’ oldest partner and largest sponsor.

The release says the complex will host guest speakers and offer training, including in areas like communication, storytelling and conflict resolution.

Sections of the complex will be named after executives, including Rex Tillerson of Exxon Mobil Corporation; J.W. “Bill” Marriott Jr. of Marriott International Inc.; John Tickle Sr. of Strongwell Corporation; and Philip Condit, retired from Boeing.
