When Noel’s son was in fourth grade in 1994, she started managing a team and has been involved ever since. She has served as coach, team manager, school coordinator, appraiser, challenge master, state board member and Global Finals appraiser. Noel says that most of her best friends today are people who are involved with DI. They're her kind of people!
