October 20, 2017
On Sunday, October 8, 2017 Boy Scout Troop 220 held an Eagle Scout Court of Honor to recognize ten new Eagle Scouts: J.T. Truman, Brock Lane, Eli Mendenhall, Ryan McCain, Austin Harrell, Jackson Studer, Jacob Harris, Ben Boyle, Parker Mendenahll and Jonathan Marszalek.
Eagle Scout is the highest rank in Boy Scouts. It is quite an accomplishment considering that the Boy Scouts of America reports that only about 7% of young men who enter the Scouting program attain Eagle.
To attain the Eagle Scout rank a Scout must work his way through the first five ranks by learning skills such as camping, first aid, and personal fitness. He must earn a minimum of 21 merit badges, provide leadership to his troop, and plan and execute a community service project.
Brock is the son of Brad and Christa Lane. He is 16 and a junior at Lee’s Summit North High School where he plays the cello in the LSN Philharmonic. Brock loves to watch movies and camp.
He has been an Oakwood Baptist Church member for 16 years. Brock completed the National Youth Leadership training at Camp Naish in 2016. His high adventure trips included canoeing 100 miles at Northern Tier in Minnesota, sailing at Sea Base in Islamorada, FL, earning his Polar Bear patch for sleeping in 3.5 degree weather in Okpik, MN and hiking 92 miles at Philmont
Scout Ranch in Cimmaron, NM; therefore earning his Triple Crown in High Adventure.
He is an Ordeal in the Order of the Arrow and a Warrior in the Tribe of MicO-Say,known as Swimming Red Fox.
Brock’s Eagle Scout project included making two picnic tables and spreading mulch in the children's play area at his church.
Brock plans to attend Longview Community College to earn his Associate of Arts degree and then decide where to attend to complete his college career.
