Nine to receive Eagle Scout Award
Nine members of Troop 102, Boy Scouts of America, recently earned their Eagle Scout awards. The rank of Eagle Scout is the highest rank in the BSA program. To obtain this rank, each boy must earn at least 21 merit badges in different skills and be an example of the spirit of BSA. Each also must perform an extensive service project that he plans, organizes, leads and manages.
The new Eagle Scouts and their projects are:
- Abraham Hull: tree tags at Skyrman Arboretum
- Ashton Idiart: informational kiosk at Skyrman Arboretum
- Benjamin Idiart: constructed and installed benches at Mae Richardson Elementary School in Central Point
- Carter Bennett: constructed and installed four benches in the Central Point pioneer cemetery
- Dillon Dritchas: constructed a shed for Central Point Parks and Recreation equipment
- Erik Olsen: built two record boards for the Crater Cross Country and Track teams
- Jacob Harnois: built booths for Mae Richardson Halloween carnival
- Logan Thurman: Built Jackson Forks Trail retaining walls
- Tate Broesder: built a shelter for the snack-shack at Madrone Trail School
There will be an Eagle Court of Honor and Dinner at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 1, to honor all nine Eagle Scouts.
