Three local Boy Scouts have attained the level of Eagle Scouts.
Landon Kruse, Kolton Swonke, and Aaron Jantzi from Boy Scout Troop 742 were recently honored with the Eagle Scout Award, Boy Scouts of America's highest honor. The special ceremony took place at St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church which sponsors the Troop. Jim Kruse, Troop 742's Scoutmaster, said "These young men are very deserving of Scouting’s highest honor. Only the top 2 percent of all scouts achieve this prestigious award.”
In order to earn the Eagle Scout award, the scouts had to each earn 21 merit badges, plan and lead an Eagle Scout community service project, earn seven rank advancements, provide countless service hours to the community, and live up to the scout oath and the 12 points of the scout law. All 3 scouts also attended several summer camps over 7 plus years of scouting including a trip to the Boy Scouts premiere Philmont Scout Ranch in the mountains of New Mexico.
