he’s an eagle scout!
It was a big night tonight for Owen…he received his Eagle Scout rank! After many years of working on merit badges, attending troop meetings, participating in campouts, serving in leadership positions and, finally, completing his Eagle Scout project, he was able to sit in front of the District Board of Review (adult Boy Scout leaders) tonight to talk about his experiences. They grilled him with questions and asked him to talk about his achievements, goals, hobbies, and of course, what he learned from his Boy Scout experience. The Board of Review was impressed with his answers and as a result of his interview and accomplishments, Owen was awarded the Eagle Scout rank. Check out this video to see them announcing him to the leadership group and to hear Owen talk about his Eagle Scout project. Sometime this summer, we’ll celebrate with an official Eagle Scout ceremony, but for now, this blog announcement will have to serve as his celebration. Congratulations, Owen! We’re so proud of you!
