Boy Scouts of America Troop 38 of Camden Military Academy (CMA) held an Eagle court in the school’s library on May 18. More than 70 people were on hand for the event from all over the country. CMA Eagle Scouts being honored were:
• Joe Barriere, Crestwood, Ky. -- involved in building bat boxes for mosquito control in the city of Sumter.
• H. Wyatt Hart, Milton, Ga. -- led the way in building furniture for the Historic Camden Revolutionary War Site.
• Noel Johnson, Jacksonville Beach, Fla. -- project included remodeling effort for CMA’s barber shop.
• J. Niles Leach, Tonsaket, Wash. -- 230 hours of painting various pieces of furniture for previous Boy Scout projets.
• Sebastian Lund, St. Simon’s Island, Ga. -- led the building of picnic tables for Tracy’s Camp in Pinewood.
• Patrick Stanley, Las Vegas, N.V. -- provided more picnic tables for Historic Camden, which were placed at the site’s pond.
These scouts’ proud parents came from all over the national for the event, and in some cases were able to see their scouts graduate from CMA the same day.
“This was truly a great batch of scouts, reflecting well on the school and the community,” said CMA officials.
