Four Young Men Awarded Eagle Scout

Updated:
Ashwaubenon -

A group of young men finish a long journey by earning Eagle Scout awards at a ceremony at Bethany United Methodist Church in Ashwaubenon on Saturday.

"This is six years of hard work and you know, I think a lot of dedication," Tarl Knight, an Eagle Scout recipient, said. "It's been a struggle sometimes to stay aboard and to stay active, but with the help of the Boy Scout Community and my mom especially, we've made it through," he added.

They joined scouts at a young age.

And, over the years, they've collected merit badges to show their accomplishments on a journey to become leaders.

To achieve Eagle Scout, each gave back to the communities through a service project.

Jonathan Graham, a high school junior, spent more than 150 hours building leopold benches for his church.

"My pastor told me that they needed benches. He wanted to hold the Sunday school service outside sometimes, so I thought it was a wonderful idea," he said.

Tarl Knight gathered supplies from local schools and filled 40 boxes for students in Costa Rica.

"I chose this project because it would impact many different people who I would never meet," he said.

As the four look to the future, they now have a prestigious honor to help them prepare for the world's challenges.

"Any troop turning out one Eagle in a year is an incredible thing, but- now nine eagles and four eagles in one ceremony is really just a testimony to their efficiency in getting things done," Steve Graham, Jonathan Graham's father, said.
