Freshman C. Graham has earned the highest advancement award from the Boy Scouts of America, the Eagle Scout Award. Mr. Graham is a founding member of Troop 2269, which was started here at MPCS in March 2017. He is also the first member of the Troop to earn his Eagle Scout Award. For his Eagle project, Mr. Graham built six benches that are placed around Lake McDonald. He chose this project to give back to the school community. He hopes everyone can use the benches to enjoy our beautiful campus and God’s creation. As part of his project, Mr. Graham had to develop a plan, seek Boy Scouts of America's and the school’s approval, fundraise, execute his plan with volunteers, and document the process.
Since its inception in 1911, only four percent of Scouts have earned the rank of Eagle. Requirements include living by the Scout Oath and Scout Law, progressing through seven ranks, completing at least 21 merit badges, serving in key positions of responsibility, completing an Eagle Scout Project, and passing an extensive review process. The Scout program offers young men many opportunities in leadership and community service.
Mr. Graham joins other outstanding American citizens who have become Eagle Scouts, among them Martin Luther King, Jr., former President George W. Bush, astronaut Neil A. Armstrong, cinematographer Steven Spielberg, NBA Hall of Famer Michael Jordan, and actor Chris Pratt.
Congratulations on this outstanding achievement!
