BECOMING AN EAGLE SCOUT
One of the things I am most proud of in my life is that I am becoming an Eagle Scout. I have worked almost my entire life to earn Eagle. I started Cub Scouts back in first grade. Over the years, I watched as kids continuously dropped out, but I was relentless. I was focused and determined to finish what I started. I knew I wanted to be an Eagle Scout my entire life, so unlike others, I put up with some of the tedious work and learned many valuable lessons and formed enduring friendships on the way. I learned the values to be a leader, morals and practical skills: first aid, knot tying, outdoor skills, budgeting, and project managing. I also discovered the importance of service to the community. My troop and I have spent countless hours assisting our community through the support of churches, the local American Legion, Rotary and many other organizations. I strive to live my life like a scout, as a trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, curious, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent person. These lessons and experiences helped shape the person I am today and I wouldn't trade them for anything.
