Six local Boys Scouts were inducted as Eagle Scouts at Northside Christian Church recently (Sunday, January 16) with a pinning ceremony of their medals.
Becoming an Eagle Scout is not an easy task. Only approximately 2 percent of beginning Cub Scouts ever become Eagle Scouts, the highest ranking in scouting. The Eagle Scout designation is for life.
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.
