Lee's Summit Boy Scout Troop 220 Recognizes Ten New Eagle Scouts: Elias Payne Mendenhall

Lee's Summit Boy Scout Troop 220 Recognizes Ten New Eagle Scouts: Elias Payne Mendenhall

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.

Eli is the son of Jason and Brigid Mendenhall and Kari and Roy Askren. He is 16 and a junior at Lee’s Summit High School. Eli loves to fish and be outdoors. 

During the summer of 2016, he worked at the H. Roe Bartle Boy Scout Reservation as a staff member teaching other Scouts about the safety and maintenance of shotguns. Eli is an Ordeal in the Order of the Arrow and a Firebuilder in the Tribe of Mic-O-Say, known as Midnight Oak.

His Eagle Scout project was to make bow holders for the James A. Reed/Missouri Department of Conservation at the archery range. He and his fellow Scouts made forty bow holders. 

His plans after high school are to attend Metropolitan Community College and get his Radiology degree. Eli will then decide where to complete his Bachelors degree.
