Jim Nicholl , Former Post 104 - 2018 Adjutant of the Year
Posted: 7 April 2018
Jim Nicholl is honored for his many years of service to Post 104 as the “Post Adjutant of the Year” and presenting the award is Post Vice-Commander Roy Burnette. The legion is blessed to have such a dedicated individual who has kept our meeting minutes, handled banking transactions, conducted membership assistance, involved himself with numerous Post 104 events concerning the younger generations of the community, and selflessly devoted himself to the betterment of the administrative portion of Post 104 business. Jim is retiring after the 2017-2018 season is complete and member Larry Agle will be stepping in to fill Jim’s enormous shoes during the upcoming Post Officer election in June. Those of us who have worked with Jim over the years are glad to know that he is passing the torch of responsibility to the younger generation and I personally congratulate him for all he has done for our veterans in Jackson and Swain counties.
May his life and his wife be blessed as he ventures into post-retirement. Thank you Jim!
