Eagle Scouts contribute to their communities
Twelve young men who received the rank of Eagle Scout in 2016 were recognized at the annual Bryce Canyon District Eagle Scout Banquet. The young men represented the communities of Alton, Fredonia, Glendale, Kanab and Orderville. Over 100 aspiring Scouts and their leaders paid tribute to the dedication and hard work of the Eagle Scouts. Lance Jackson provided the keynote address in which he encouraged everyone to live the Scout Oath.
Service projects are a key requirement for a young man to receive the Eagle award. This year’s group completed 12 projects that are valuable contributions to their communities. Looking at the project totals is impressive. The Eagles coordinated the efforts of 171 workers for a total of 1050 hours of volunteered labor to complete these projects.
