NESA recently launched a new online feature called Faces & Places. The page is designed to showcase the contributions NESA members make across the country and the accomplishments they reach on every level.
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.
While at NOAC here in Knoxville, Tennessee, the NESA booth has had thousands of participants come through to say hello, spin the patch give-a-way wheel, and take their photo at the NESA Eagle wall and we have loved having you come through.
As lodges filled into the Thompson-Boling Arena in Knoxville for the NOAC Opening show, each of the lodge contingents presented their lodge flap on giant six-foot banners and the crowd roared to life. It was followed by a stunning presentation of the American flag throughout the stadium.
Calling all Arrowmen and Eagle flocking to NOAC! Today we opened up the adventure area with awesome booths, and several hundred people coming through the NESA booth and Exhibit. We were honored to have our Chief Scout Executive, Roger Mosby, our International Commissioner Scott Sorrels, and our National Chief Timothy Reiss, each visit our booth and interact with youth and adults alike!
Our NESA staff came from all corners of the country and attended to the details of setting up a spectacular booth, putting on the polishing finish on top notch training, then finished off with a staff show led by National Chief and Vice Chief empowering each of us to deliver world class events for our attendees! Special thanks to all our NESA staff, and Events team for their help.
