This year’s conclave will feature a multitude of guest speakers and trainers from all over the country and we asked them a couple questions so you could get to know them better.

  1. Hometown & School Status?
  2. Jamboree Role?
  3. Chipotle or Chick-Fil-A & Why?
  4. Why do you love the OA?
  5. Other Hobbies?

  2. Order of the Arrow National Vice Chief, Operation Arrow Management.
  3. Chick-Fil-A, because the closest Chipotle to me is two hours away.
  4. The relationships that I have made throughout the country are because of the OA.  I have friends spanning the country that I have met at Jamborees, Conferences, and OA High Adventure. I also love that the OA is ran by youth.

  3. Chick-Fil-A because who doesn’t like their chicken and sauce
  4. The opportunity to work with other Arrowmen to give back to the scouting program, which has been a major influence on my life. Also, the fellowship at all the different events is always a unique and fun experience.
  5. Camping, playing football, and spending time with friends.

Section (NE-1) Chief Justin St. Louis

  1. From Lowell, Massachusetts. Attending University of Massachusetts, Lowell as a Political Science Major.

  4. The Order of the Arrow has provided me with so many amazing opportunities to grow as a leader and a scout but none of that compares to the amazing times I’ve had with my brothers in the Order. I will never forget the connections I’ve made with Arrowmen from across the nation and the experiences I’ve had with them.
  5. Theatre, writing, debate, and eating
