Her Performance is Above and Beyond

I would like to recognize two members of your staff working at the Chattooga River. Our trip leader was Claire and our guide was Kaitlyn. Both of these ladies did a great job and NOC can be proud of their performance. They were professional in their duties, personable in their interactions and most importantly, just plain fun to be around. I have made the Section IV trip a number of times and the NOC crew has always been of the highest caliber, but the performance of these two ladies stands above and beyond.
