Triple Eagle

Triple Eagle

by Susan Neuhalfen

In January, BSA Troop 771 held the first Triple Eagle Court of Honor at the Scout Barn in Argyle. In addition to awarding the scouts their merit badges and other accolades, three scouts were celebrated for reaching Eagle status, scouting’s highest honor.

Tanner Hornsby, Hayden Hazelip and Taylor Quick all received their Eagle awards at the ceremony.

Tanner is a sophomore at Guyer High School. For his Eagle project, he cleaned, prepped and painted the fire hydrants in Lantana.

Hayden is a senior at Guyer High School. For his project, he built an enclosed storage area to house children’s outdoor toys and tricycles at the Wheeler House, a place where agencies provide family housing, street outreach, and clinic services in Denton.

Taylor, a senior at Denton High School, also completed a project for the Wheeler House, creating a privacy fence.

All three enlisted the help of their troop for labor and also had to fundraise for the materials to complete the projects. The projects had to be approved by an Eagle Board of Review and then determined by the board again to be successfully carried out by the Eagle Scout candidate.

After graduation, both Hayden and Taylor will attend basic training for the Marines. Tanner plans to study engineering once he graduates.

The Eagle Scout is the highest rank attainable in the scouting program. Started over a century ago, only four percent of Boy Scouts earn this prestigious rank.
