To help celebrate the Order of the Arrow’s Centennial the National Committee created the Centurion Award. The Centurion Award aims to highlight “Hometown Heroes,” or Arrowmen who have meaningfully contributed to the forming, maturing and ongoing operational excellence of their local council’s lodge, and who, in doing so, inspired others to follow in their footsteps. Recipients are recognized for their contributions during their “Youth” or “Adult” years of service.
This award is a one-time recognition associated with the centennial anniversary of the OA that is bestowed by the national Order of the Arrow committee.

On behalf of Ku-Ni-Eh Lodge, we would like to thank each of the recipients for their contributions to Ku-Ni-Eh Lodge and the Order of the Arrow and congratulate them on receiving the Centurion Award.
As part of the 100th Anniversary celebration for the Order of the Arrow, Lodges were asked to submit a rock, engraved with the lodge’s name and council headquarters city. These rocks will be included as a permanent part of the Summit Circle, the Order of the Arrow’s new ceremonial grounds at the Summit Bechtel Reserve. As a means to recognize those lodges that have been merged and no longer exist, the National Order of the Arrow Committee decided to also include rocks from inactive lodges to become part of a special display at NOAC 2015 and eventually find a permanent home at the Summit Circle. These are images of the rocks that will be representing KU-NI-EH Lodge 145 and the four Lodges that merged to create it.
