Final Notes from Knoxville headed to Jamboree ’23

By: Brandon Kelly
As we leave NOAC in Knoxville, we reflect on the interactions, new members, and achievements of all Eagle Scouts, combined with the great training on scholarships, building council committees with strong relations for the volunteers, as well as the leadership lessons earned from Frank Tsuru through the NESA 50 anniversary dinner.  It truly was a great success for Arrowmen and Eagles alike.
