Lee's Summit Boy Scout Troop 220 Recognizes Ten New Eagle Scouts: Jacob D. Harris

Lee's Summit Boy Scout Troop 220 Recognizes Ten New Eagle Scouts: Jacob D. Harris

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.

Jacob is the son of Thomas and Laurel Harris. He is 18 and a senior at Lee’s Summit High School. He plays lacrosse as a goalie and belongs to FBLA (Future Business Leader of America.) Currently, he is doing a frame-off restore and modification of his Jeep. 

Jacob is an Ordeal in the Order of the Arrow and in the Tribe of Mic-O-Say he is known as Tom-Tom Beater Fierce Quiets Fire. He also served on staff at H. Roe Bartle Scout Camp in the summer of 2016. Jacob’s high adventures include Sea Base in Islamorada, FL. and Okpik in Ely, MN. He has also attended Order of the Arrow Conclave for training. 

After high school, Jacob plans on finishing his ASE Certification (Automotive Service Excellence) and start college at Longview and transfer to a four year college. He may pursue out of state colleges as well.
