Three Students Awarded Eagle Scout Rank
Feb 05, 2020
Three Villa Madonna Academy High School students have earned the rank of Eagle Scout through Scouts BSA. Eagle Scout is the highest rank in the scouting program, and only four percent of Scouts have earned this esteemed honor. Scouts who earn the honor must earn 21 merit badges, assume a leadership role in their troop, and plan and complete a service project.
Aidan Collins '21 (left) organized a crew to repair a dog run area at the Boone County Animal Shelter. He earned 50 merit badges and several Eagle Palms for achieving 29 merit badges beyond the 21 required for Eagle Scout. Patrick Goodwin '20 (center) earned 42 merit badges and built a free store library and two benches at Fox Run Park in Boone County. Gary Turgeon '20 (right) also became an Eagle Scout this fall. He is responsible for building the outdoor classroom on Villa's campus. The platform and benches have been enjoyed by art, science, and math students.
