My name is Brendan Taylor and I am the project leader for the SCA PCT 1 Summer Crew. I am 26 and I was born and raised in Blue Bell, PA. This is the third crew I have led and will be the last one I lead, at least for a while. These crew’s are unbelievably valuable experiences. I have learned so much about leadership, community building, trail building, the great outdoors, and much more. It will be difficult not leading the next PCT crew in the winter, but I am prepared to take on new challenges, and there is no doubt in my mind that this crew and my previous two crew’s have readied me for whatever comes next. I know I will look back on being an SCA project leader fondly and I will forever value the relationships I have built with the different agency partners and even more so with my crewmembers.
