David Shormann was recently awarded the highest rank in Boy Scouts: Eagle Scout. 

David started Scouts in the first grade and crossed into Boy Scouts in the sixth. 

To achieve the rank of Eagle you must hold a position of responsibility for six months, be active for six months, earn at least twenty-one merit badges and complete a service project to benefit the community. 

David’s service project was to make and install fishing line recycle bins at Lake Lincoln in Cuivre River State Park. 

The prospective Eagle Scout is to construct and implement the project. He must plan, organize and oversee the project from start to finish. David’s project would not have been possible without the assistance of local businesses, which he would like to thank: Romar Supply, Old Monroe Lumber, Silex Banking Company, Advanced Rental and Service, Creative Graphic Solution, Weinand Younger Tire and Cuivre River State Park. David’s court of Honor was held on June 30 where he was presented with his reward and recognition. 

He received many congratulatory letters, including correspondence from President Donald Trump, Governor Parsons, The Admiral of the Coast Guard, the Air Force, President George W. Bush, Bill Gates of Microsoft and Michael Jordan to name a few. 

Less than four percent of Boy Scouts make it to the rank of Eagle. Congratulation David on a job well done!
