Trai Gallagher, 17, is the son of Nathan and Misty Gallagher. Trai has been a part of Scouts since he was in 6th grade.
His Eagle Scout project was building a floating boardwalk at the Rotary Youth Camp in Lee’s Summit, Mo. Trai gathered donations from various organizations to complete his project.
