Troop 20 scout achieves rank of Eagle

In October, Phillip Mostellar of Boy Scout Troop 20 was awarded the rank of Eagle Scout. The journey to Eagle takes many years of dedication, focus and hard work, and is the reason only 4% to 6% of Scouts achieve the highest rank the Boy Scouts. Scouting has been a staple of the Mostellar household for many years as Phillip is the last of four brothers to achieve the rank of Eagle Scout. Phillip becomes the 23rd Eagle Scout from Troop 20 and has obtained a title that will follow him throughout his life.

A capstone Eagle Scout requirement is to plan, develop and provide leadership for a service project. In August, with the help of current and past Troop 20 Scouts, Phillip completed his Eagle Project at the aptly named Eagle’s Rest Park on Mount Oglethorpe.

In parallel with working on rank advancements and merit badges, Troop 20 is very active in the community. The Troop is currently working toward its summer 2019 high-adventure trip to the Boy Scout camp in the Florida Keys, called Sea Base. To help fund this trip, Troop 20 has held 2 car washes and in January will offer a frozen lasagna sale. Look for more information in the December issue of Smoke Signals.
