Lee's Summit Troop 42 Honors Eagle Scout Kyle Meyer

Lee's Summit Troop 42 Honors Eagle Scout Kyle Meyer

September 26, 2015

On Sunday, September 20, 2015 Boy Scout Troop 42 held an Eagle Scout Court of Honor to recognize four new Eagle Scouts: Perry Denman Alewel, Kyle Brent Meyer, John Bailey Mullen and Lawrence Edward Reilly.

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.

Alewel, Meyer, Mullen and Reilly have joined an elite group that includes Gerald Ford, Neil Armstrong and Steven Spielberg.

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.

Additionally on the way to Eagle, a Scout has other opportunities for leadership and service. He can deepen his faith by earning his religious award. He may be called to join the Tribe of Mic-O-Say honor camping program or the Order of the Arrow national honor society.
All of this hard work preparing them to be tomorrow’s leaders.

Kyle Brent Meyer joined Pack 42 as a Tiger Cub and crossed over to Troop 42 in March 2009.  He has fulfilled the roles of Quartermaster, Patrol Leader and served as Co-Senior Patrol Leader for 2014-2015. 

Kyle has worked to complete 31 merit badges. In addition he has completed the requirements for the World Conservation Award.  He participated in a High Adventure trip at BSA’s Florida Sea Base where he earned PADI certification for Scuba Diving in Open Water and Coral Reef Conservation. 
Kyle has attended scout camp at the Bartle Scout Reservation for seven years and has earned the rank of Warrior in the Tribe of Mic-O-Say. He was given additional responsibilities as a Tom-Tom Beater this past summer.  His tribal name is Tom-Tom Beater Son of Wiley Grey Coyote. 

Kyle’s Eagle Scout service project consisted of constructing 3 sets of bunk beds for Midwest Foster Care.  Kyle organized a team to deliver and install the beds in the homes of families hosting foster children.  He also secured donations of mattresses and new bedding and pillows to present to the children.  Kyle realized the impact of his project was when one 7 year old boy said thank you and told Kyle this was the first bed he ever had.

Kyle will graduate from Lee’s Summit North High School in May 2016.  He will be recognized for his membership in the National Honor Society as well as for his advanced and college credit coursework. He has maintained a 3.8 GPA while swimming on the Boys Varsity Swim and Dive Team and fulfilling duties as Manager of the Girls Swim and Dive Team. He plans to attend the University of Missouri where he will pursue a major in Engineering.
