Bryant Becomes Eagle Scout

Andy Bryant, Sting Reporter

On the night of December 17th, one young man earned the highest honor he could earn as a Scout. That honor is known as the Eagle Scout. That young man was me, Andrew Bryant. After an extensive Eagle Board of Review, I was welcomed by my Eagle Board, which consisted of Rodger Zimmer, Mrs. Coop, Randy Werner, and the Unit Commissioner Terry, into the Rank of Eagle Scout. I am extremely grateful to these people who came and sat on my Eagle Board. The Eagle Scout honor opens many doors to me, and I plan to utilize the ones that open to me. I am awestruck by the number of individuals who have earned this honor before me. Neil Armstrong, Gerald Ford, and Sam Walton just to name a few.
One of the requirements for Eagle Scout is that the candidate must complete an Eagle Scout Project, which they must propose, plan, and execute. My project was unshingling and reshingling the bathrooms at Fort Kaskaskia.
