Troop 54 Honors Three Eagle Scouts: Joe Andrews

Troop 54 Honors Three Eagle Scouts: Joe Andrews

Feburary 8, 2014

Boy Scout Troop 54 of Holy Spirit Catholic Church, Lee’s Summit, Mo., is proud to recognize three new Eagle Scouts: Joe Andrews, Ryan Lange and John Reuss.

Eagle Scout is the highest rank in Boy Scouts. It is quite an accomplishment considering that less than 3% of young men who enter the Scouting program attain Eagle.

Andrews, Lange and Reuss 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. He also has the opportunity to attend a variety of high adventure bases.

All of this hard work preparing them to be tomorrow’s leaders.

Joe Andrews, 17, has been involved in scouting since second grade. He attended summer camp at the H. Roe Bartle Scout Reservation for six years. His Eagle project benefited the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program at Holy Spirit Catholic Church. He worked with the program’s leadership to develop plans for a Baptismal Area, a Cenacle, and four Chasuble Stands. Joe’s project was completely funded by Knights of Columbus Council 8334. After multiple work days he completed his project with the help of fellow scouts in November 2013.

Joe is the son of Paul and Stephanie Andrews, and is a Junior at Lee’s Summit West High School. He is involved in Titan Television, Symphonic Band and the Titan Pride Marching Band. In Titan Television, Joe is a sports producer and a member of the web team. In October 2013, Joe and two other partners produced "Superman Sam," a sports feature for the Student Television Network Challenge. The story received honorable mention. Joe plans to major in Sports Media after high school graduation.
