Cody Tew, Joe Adams, Nicholas Clements, and Henry Waggoner received a flag for the school and certificates commemorating their advancement to the rank of Eagle scout and honoring their dedication to the community. The flag was gifted to them by a congressman and was previously flown over the capitol.

“Earning Eagle Scout is such a big achievement,” Adams said. “It takes years of hard work and effort not only to learn the outdoor need to advance through the ranks in scouting, but also the leadership and time management and project skills required to finish your Eagle Scout rank.”

The Eagle Scout program allows teens to build on skills that will take them through future careers and aid them in their life after graduation. Only 4% of scouts in the program advance to Eagle Scout. It requires a minimum of 21 merit badges to advance.

“Being a scout is fun, but it has its difficulties,” Tew said. “As a scout I’ve had the ability to travel across the country to several different camps such as Summit National Scout Reserve in West Virginia. I’ve made many memories in scouting that I will cherish forever and I still have many to make as I continue my scouting career as an adult.”

Adams, one of the scouts who received the flag, has been an active scout for five years. He started when he was twelve years old, and through the years has learned various skills such as wilderness survival, first aid, and knot tying.

“It takes a lot of nerves for a twelve year old kid to set aside that much effort into such a long term goal,” Adams said. “It took five and a half years for me to get Eagle, and staying motivated through all that time to finish strong was the biggest challenge.”
