Troop 616 recognized 12 New Eagle Scouts in 2016
For Boy Scout Troop 616, 2016 was a year of extraordinary accomplishments. Twelve boys in the troop earned the rank of Eagle Scout. “The Scouts range in age from 13 to 17, and attaining the rank Eagle Scout represents the culmination of many years of work on advancement, merit badges, camping, and the Eagle Project,” explained Paul Honeycutt, Scoutmaster, who is an Eagle Scout himself.
After celebrating another Scout who earned his rank in early 2017, the troop boasts 127 Eagle Scouts among its members and alumni. Success is a team effort. “With the help of many assistant scoutmasters, committee members, and involved parents working in the background, a fertile ground for advancement was laid over many years,” Paul said.
