Awards and Accomplishments I have been Honored to receive.

  • In the SCA we have a system of rewarding people for things they have done. It is one of the things about the SCA that I truly love and as a scribe it has been my honor to make many of these awards for other people. When people receive these awards they often frame them and hang them up on a wall. This is something of my abridged SCA resume. (main page) LAST UPDATED 7/2018
