One More Eagle

Today young Everett was formally recognized as an Eagle Scout. I was able to attend the Boy Scout ceremony in picturesque Helen, GA.

As a lad I'd made it to the rank of a Cub Scout WeBeLoS myself -- received my Arrow of Light, earned a gold and four silver arrows as a Wolf and again as a Bear. By then my own interests had turned more towards sports, especially soccer, but I still have happy memories of my scouting years.

A few years ago Everett asked me to be his sponsor for his Confirmation, which I was glad to do.

Congratulations to Everett for twelve years of persistence and hard work.
