The six Eagle Scouts inducted were: Thomas Cullen, Joshua Harris, Taylor Lessig, Houston Mills III, Cory Owen Neel, and Levi Speth.
Thomas Cullen has been a member of Troop 4734 at Northside Christian Church since 2001, and became a Boy Scout in 2004.

Floyd starts off with 14-0 lead over NH; hangs on for 48-33 victory
It’s a good thing that the Floyd Central Highlanders got off to a 14-0 start in their home contest with the North Harrison Cougars Saturday night, because the Cougars outscored them only 34-33 the rest of the way.
The opening onslaught took place over the first seven minutes of the game, and it forced North Harrison into two time outs by the 1:01 mark in the 1st quarter.
