Lee's Summit Boy Scout Troop 220 Recognizes Ten New Eagle Scouts: Jack Parker Mendenhall

Lee's Summit Boy Scout Troop 220 Recognizes Ten New Eagle Scouts: Jack Parker 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.

Parker is the son of Jason and Brigid Mendenhall and Kari and Roy Askren. He is 14 and a freshman at Lee’s Summit High School. Parker likes to hunt, fish and plans on trying out for basketball this season. 

He was selected to give the Eagle Scout Testimonial this year at the George Meany Labor Awards Banquet, a fundraiser for the Heart of America Council of the Boy Scouts of America. Parker is currently an Ordeal in the Order of the Arrow and a Brave in the Tribe of MicO-Say, known as Curious Peering Crow. 

His Eagle Scout project was building bat houses for the Missouri Department of Conservation to provide cover from predators. Bats can eat thousands of mosquitoes and crop destroying insects in an evening. 

Parker plans on attending KState and majoring in Wildlife Biology.
