Four members of Navasota’s former Boy Scout Troop 249 recently ascended to the scout’s highest rank. And in celebration of their dedication, they were honored with an Eagle Scout ceremony at City Council’s first meeting this month.
But to attain the coveted rank, Christian Ashley tells Navasota News he and the other new Eagle Scouts had to finish a monumental task, he built a play house for Navasota’s Trinity Lutheran Church.
The quartet’s Shilo George built a play area, also at the church, so children will have a place to frolic and make it easier for parents to keep an eye on them, while Colson Hildrith created a prayer garden complete with a trio of benches and flowers.
Last, but certainly not least, Raymond Wood chose to build his project in a more somber setting, he created a map for the city’s Oakland cemetery which is now posted by the entrance.
Now an Eagle, Ashely says it took a lot of effort and help for the boys to complete all the requirements, but grins, we started it all together, it only made sense to finish at the same time as well.
We at Navasota News join with others and City Council in congratulating the squad for their achievements and wish them continued success whether it’s within the Boy Scouts or not.
