Gregory P. Sheets

On Sunday, October 28, 2012, Boy Scout Troop 220 in
Lees Summit, Missouri held an Eagle Court of Honor to recognize seven Eagle Scouts.

Eagle Scout is the highest rank in Boy Scouts. Becoming an Eagle Scout is not an easy task.
Only a very small percent of Boy Scouts earn the Eagle Scout rank.

In 2008 Gregory Sheets joined Troop 220 where he earned Scout, Tenderfoot, Second Class and First Class ranks. In 2009 he earned Star rank, following that up with Life rank in 2010.
Gregory earned his Eagle Scout in August 2012.

Gregory’s path to Eagle is lined with 26 merit badges and service to the troop as Den Chief, Chaplain Aide, Assistant Patrol Leader, Scribe and Quartermaster. He completed Junior Leader Training, Den Chief Training and National Youth Leadership Training. Additionally he earned the Den Chief Service Award.

Gregory is a Warrior in the Tribe of Mic-O-Say with the tribal name Shining Little Young Laughing Moon and a Brotherhood member of the Order of the Arrow.

For his Eagle Scout service project, Gregory painted a United States Map on the playground at Meadow Lane Elementary School. Two kickball squares, two 4-square games and seven line-up lines were also re-painted.

Gregory is the son of Kevin and Terri Sheets. He is a sophomore attending Lee’s Summit North High School where he is a member of the Air Force Junior ROTC and Drill Team, Scholar Bowl Team, Symphonic Orchestra, and Pit Orchestra. He attended Summer Leadership School for ROTC/Venturing in 2012 and is a third generation Eagle Scout as well as fourth generation member in the Tribe of Mic-o-say. Gregory is a member of Southwood United Church of Christ and enjoys playing golf, creating new drill presentations and playing violin in his free time. 

In the future, he hopes to earn an appointment to the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado and train to fly fighter jets.
