2015 Spirit Awards Winners Announced!
2015 Spirit Awards Winners Announced!
Six chapters took home bragging rights and funding to support a chapter family event as a result of being named winners in the 2015 Spirit Award competition, which wrapped up at the end of May. The Spirit Award was established by the Foundation Board of Directors to recognize the Chapters that added the most new members to the USNSCF master mailing list during the seven month period from October 2014 through May 2015.
The Washington, DC Chapter was named as the winner in the Large category and will be awarded $2500; the Mechanicsburg Chapter, winner in the Medium chapter category, will receive $1500; and the Monterey Chapter, winner in the Small category, earned $1000. The funds are provided to allow the chapter to host a family event of their choosing within the Community Values and Traditions guidelines. In addition Foundation will recognize the tremendous efforts of three other chapters, South West Asia, Tampa Bay and Hawaii, by awarding them $500 each for a similar event of their choosing.
More than 320 names were added to the Navy Supply Corps Foundation mailing list as a result of the effort. The Spirit Award provides a positive reward to the chapters, however the best outcome is to those “lost” members who will now be reconnected with the Supply Corps and share in the spirit of camaraderie, heritage and service that the Navy Supply Corps Foundation provides.
Congratulations to the chapter winners and a special thank you to each chapter president and all the members who supported this effort.
The final numbers list.

Ready for Sea: A History of the U.S. Navy Supply Corps is available!
At a cost of only $50, this beautifully crafted, limited edition coffee table book captures the history of the U.S. Navy's Supply Corps in a way not done before.

Through this historical context, you'll gain a new appreciation for what it means to be a U.S. Navy Supply Corps Officer.
