Troop 1262 Honors Eagle Scout David Mumm

Troop 1262 Honors Eagle Scout David Mumm

June 9, 2012

On Sunday, June 3, 2012, Troop 1262 in Lees Summit, Missouri held an Eagle Court of Honor to recognize David Mumm.

David Matthew Mumm, 13, was born on February 7, 1999 in Overland Park, Kansas. He is the only child of Thomas and AnnaRose Mumm of Lee’s Summit. David attended Hawthorn Hill Elementary School for six years. He just finished his 7th grade Year at Summit Lakes Middle School. David’s academic achievements have placed him on the Principal’s Honor Roll as well as the Citizenship Honor Roll each quarter. He was also recognized for achieving the Perfect Attendance Award.

David entered into Cub Scouts as second year Webelos in the fall of 2009. In six short months, he was able to earn 14 belt loops and he earned his Arrow of light at the February 27, 2010 Blue and Gold Banquet. David entered into Boy Scouts of America during a very exciting time, the Scouts 100 year anniversary. David crossed over into Troop 1262 at Aldersgate United Methodist Church as a Boy Scout on March 1, 2010. David earned his first merit badge on June 26, 2010 and now has a grand total of 61 merit badges to his name, including the four 100 year historical merit badges. His goal is to get all the merit badges they offer. He has held the following positions: Scribe, Webmaster, Patrol Leader, and Troop Guide. David has worked hard to earn the God and Church Award; the World Conservation Award; and 12 Month Camper Award. He became an Ordeal member in Order of the Arrow in 2011 and Brotherhood in 2012. David is honored to be going to the National Youth Leadership Training at Camp Naish for a week in June.

This will be his 3rd year at H. Roe Bartle Scout Camp. He is looking forward to becoming a Foxman this year and would like to get on staff. David is looking forward to future high adventure activities and proud to think of becoming part of the great Tribe of Mic-O-Say.

On May 31, 2012, David became an Eagle Scout. He follows in the footsteps of his grandfather who was also an Eagle Scout. David believes in encouraging other Scouts to earn their Eagle rank sooner than later. His Eagle Project was to make a Reading Garden for the Lees Summit Branch of the Mid-Continent Public Library.

David’s Eagle Scout project consisted of planning, organizing, and leading the three different phases. First group built and assembled three outdoor benches, the second and largest group, put down the 4½ x 6 foot Pavestone patio, while the last and final phase was to put the benches and flower pots in place. It has been an enjoyable gift to see people sitting on your accomplishment as you pass by.

He has completed 195 service hours including 11 Eagle projects and working with 1040 other Boy Scouts during the Joplin schools partnership to get the schools back up after the tornado. David has given back in many other ways like working on the Joplin Tornado Response Team with his church (Abundant Life Baptist Church), Rachael House, Trick or Treat to eat, Harvesters warehouse, and Project Warmth to name a few. In addition, he took part in the flag ceremonies at Bass Pro, UMKC, John Knox Village and his grandfather’s own service last year.

In his free time this summer, David will be busy with Falcon Football Camp, Strength and Conditioning, Mars League Vex Robotics, Junior Police Academy, and working at Vacation Bible School. He will end the summer by taking some time out to have fun with his family down at the lake before going back to school.
