Brayden A.

Greetings Section W-4N,

I am thrilled to serve as your Section Secretary for the 2018-19 term. I come from Spe-Le-Yai Lodge in Glendale, CA. Since joining the Order of the Arrow in late May 2015, I have served as Spe-Le-Yai’s Secretary and Vice-Chief of Membership. This past year I had the privilege to serve alongside many inspiring people as Spe-Le-Yai’s Lodge Chief. I obtained my Brotherhood in May 2016 and earned my Eagle in October 2017. This upcoming year, I am excited to be a part of an amazing team who will work to expand communication, provide solid lodge support, and increase section fiscal responsibility. Thank you for this opportunity to provide an exceptional experience to those arrowmen in the lodges within our section.

Yours in Service,

Brayden Armes
Section W-4N Secretary
