Lee's Summit Troop 42 Honors Eagle Scout Perry Alewel

Lee's Summit Troop 42 Honors Eagle Scout Perry Alewel

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.

Perry Denman Alewel began his Scouting journey as a Cub Scout at the age of 10 in Pack 42.  He crossed over into Boy Scouts in February of 2008 and progressed to Eagle in March 2015. Perry has served in Troop 42 as a Quartermaster, Assistant Quartermaster, and a Patrol Leader for two years.

Perry has earned 32 Merit badges in his time in Scouting as well as the World Conservation Award in 2013. He participated in the high adventure trip to the Canadian Boundary Waters at Crane Lake and is slated to go on the Philmont High Adventure trip in 2016.

Perry is a Warrior in the tribe of Mic-O-Say, and earned additional responsibilities as a Firebuilder this summer. Perry’s tribal name is White Spark in Sky.

Perry’s Eagle Project was to construct six campfire benches for the Rotary Youth Camp in Lee’s Summit. This will enhance the camping experience for physically, emotionally, and mentally disabled youth of Greater Kansas City, as well as Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and other organizations supporting youth.

Perry is currently a senior at Lees Summit North High School, where he has also earned the rank of 1st Lieutenant in the Air Force Junior ROTC. Upon graduation, Perry will be pursuing a degree in fire science.
