On Saturday, Mar. 7, Boy Scout Troop 1551 held an Eagle Scout Court of Honor to recognize 10 new Eagle Scouts: Jason Kitchens, Samuel Aamodt, Miles Goodman, David Millward, Lincoln Hamaker, Brigham Essig, Isaac Chase, Michael Chase, Logen Bembrook and Jakob Bembrook.

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.

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.

Logen J. Benbrook is 17 years old and enjoys designing and fabrication of everyday items. He is currently learning acoustic guitar. He is currently enrolled in college and is working toward a degree in the Sciences. He is interested in science and mathematics and anything science fiction. Enjoyed camping and rock-climbing in scouting. His Eagle Scout project was for Jackson County Park and Recreation.
