Section Secretary: Patrick McInerney
Patrick’s involvement with the Order of the Arrow first started through his chapter’s dance and drumteam, which performs crossover ceremonies for Cub Scouts. After a couple years of dance and drum, Patrick started to broaden his OA horizon by getting involved at the chapter level, specifically by serving as chapter Unit Elections Chair as well as the Aptakisic Chapter Chief. Most recently, Patrick has served his lodge as the Ma-Ka- Ja-Wan Lodge Chief.
Come August, Patrick will be studying engineering at Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago. When not doing something scouting related, Patrick can be found intensely staring at a black line (swimming). If you smell chlorine, it’s probably him.
