Hello Brothers! My name is Sam Taylor. I am an Eagle Scout from Troop 48 in Olympia, WA and am a Vigil Honor member of Nisqually Lodge. I am currently studying journalism and media production at the Edward R. Murrow College of Communication at Washington State University (Go Cougs!) I have been a part of Scouting since I joined Cub Scouts in 2008 and Scouts BSA in 2013. As a member of the OA, I’ve served in numerous rewarding roles such as Chapter Chief, Lodge Vice Chief (Of Inductions and then later of Program) and Lodge Chief. I am also a proud member of the Ceremonies team! I am honored and thrilled to serve as your Section Chief and am looking forward to seeing you at your Lodge and Section events this year! You can read more about my goals for the year here. See you at Camp!

Hello Brothers! My name is Orion Green. It is my honor this year to serve as your Section W-1N Secretary! I am an Eagle Scout from Crew 114 out of Everett, Washington and a Vigil Honor member of the Order of the Arrow. I proudly hail from Sikhs Mox Lamonti Lodge in Mt. Baker Council (PAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTT!). While not scouting I am an Electrical Engineering student at the Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture at Washington State University (GO COUGS!). I’ve been a Scout since I was 8 years old in 2009 and have done many things in my time; including staffing summer camp, going on OA High Adventure, as well as serving in many leadership roles including being a Sikhs Mox Lamonti Past Lodge Chief. My time in OA has been nothing short of amazing, I have met friends which will last a lifetime, gone on more adventures than I can count, and participated in challenging and illuminating ceremonies that have truly changed me as a person for the better. I look forward to an amazing year filled with fun, fellowship, friends, and service. I can’t wait to see you all come on this awesome journey with me! (P.S. Sign up for OA High Adventure!!!)
