The name, SEMEOS,which sounds like it might be an Indian word, is actually an acronym for the names of the six townships within the district; South River, Edison, Metuchen, East Brunswick, Old Bridge, and Spotswood. The name was chosen by a contest held within the district and the winner was the son of Art Ford. At that time, Art was Assistant Scoutmaster for Troop 36 in Old Bridge and Tom McMillan was the Scoutmaster.
SEMEOS District started as part of the Thomas A. Edision Council. When TAEC merged with the George Washington Council, SEMEOS became part of Cenral New Jersey Council.
