Boy Scouts achieve rank of Eagle
An Eagle Court of Honor was conducted by Boy Scout Troop 224 of Scott City on November 3. Two scouts were honored for achieving the rank of Eagle Scout.
Myron "Trey" Bond Carter III has been in scouting since August of 2000. He is a junior at Scott City High School. He has completed 31 merit badges in pursuit of his Eagle rank. Trey attended summer camp at Camp Lewallen for four years. He has participated in the Order of the Arrow Summer camp and the National Youth Leader Training (NYLT) Pack and Paddle. This past summer he served as a camp counselor at S-F Scout Ranch. Trey's Eagle project was building a privacy fence for the Women's Safe House in Sikeston.
