Lee's Summit Boy Scout Troop 220 Recognizes Ten New Eagle Scouts: Joseph JT Truman

Lee's Summit Boy Scout Troop 220 Recognizes Ten New Eagle Scouts: Joseph JT Truman

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.

JT is the son of Russell and Lori Truman Christian. He is 15 and a sophomore at Lees Summit North High School. JT plays on the JV football team, belongs to Junior ROTC and is a member of the Bronco Smart group. He is a very active participant supporting the Step Up Walk for Downs Syndrome. 

His hobbies include working on cars, drawing/sketching, cooking, woodworking and spending time with family. 

JT is an Ordeal member of the Order of the Arrow and a Warrior in the Tribe of Mic-OSay, known as Swift Running Gecko. His high adventure trips have included Sea Base in Islamorada, FL and Philmont in Cimmaron, NM. 

His Eagle Scout project was remarking all the car/ school bus lanes for safety at his former school Prairie View Elementary. Principal Dr. Brigman suggested this project since it is essential. 

After graduation JT plans to join the US Air Force in hopes of attending the Air Force Academy in Colorado. JTs grandfather, Rick Truman, who was a Scoutmaster and a District Commissioner, had a great and positive influence on JTs scouting career.
