The stories shared, friendships formed and the adventures experienced have endlessly bound OA members and alumni tightly as its circle has widened.
Sid Salazar is an Eagle Scout from Middle Tennessee Council and Wa-Hi-Nasa Lodge.

He holds a B.S. in computer science from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville and a M.B.A. from Belmont University. Through his strong entrepreneurial focus on finance, operations and technology, Craig currently serves as the president of SleepRes, a medical solutions company dedicated to developing paradigm-shifting technology and products to advance the field of sleep medicine, and Sleep Centers of Middle Tennessee, a comprehensive sleep medicine practice serving Tennessee and surrounding states. He has served as section chief, Scoutmaster, lodge adviser, section adviser and as a vice chair for communications and technology on the National Order of the Arrow Committee.
While Sid and Craig both have contrasting, yet enduring memories of their inaugural interactions with one another in the program, Scouting was always ubiquitous in the Salazar household. Recently, they convened virtually to reminisce on that parent-child experience, elated to share memories and discuss both how their journeys have converged at several points on the trail and how the OA has impacted their personal and professional lives. Their lessons learned and memories shared echo similarly and are relatable to all, yet manifest from two different generations of experiences.
The OA Alliance welcomes its members to Sid and Craig’s chat with the hope that it rekindles the spark of timeless OA memories, too.
