Scouts spent over 10,500 hours serving the community
StoryThe Metropolitan King County Council today recognized the 2009 Cascade Eagle Scouts for their dedication and service to the community. Led by Councilmembers Jane Hague and Reagan Dunn, the Council celebrated the contribution of 73 scouts representing Mercer Island, Bellevue, Yarrow Point, Hunts Point, Medina and unincorporated King County that achieved the rank of Eagle Scout in 2009. Eagle Scout is the highest rank possible in the Boy Scouts of America program.
“These young men are the leaders of tomorrow,” said Hague. “Many Eagle Scouts have gone on to great things and I’m sure the same will be true for the 2009 Cascade Eagle Scouts.”
“I offer my congratulations to the Eagle Scouts, their families, and Scout leaders,” said Councilmember Dunn. “Their achievement paves the way to a positive future for themselves and their communities.”
Earning the Eagle Scout rank requires earning at least 21 merit badges, demonstrating “Scout Spirit,” leadership, and service. Each scout planned, organized and managed each project. The projects touched a variety of locations in King County, benefiting over 50 community organizations. The Scouts donated over 10,500 hours of their time to these projects.
