Griffin Barnett a member of Boy Scout Troop 326, sponsored by St. Bernard’s Catholic Church, had the Eagle Rank conferred on him at a court of honor held at the Masonic Temple in Crawfordsville.
The Eagle is the highest award that a Boy Scout can earn. Less than two percent of all scouts receive this award. To complete the Eagle requirements a Life Scout must plan and lead a service project to help his community. Barnett’s project was to build a new connecting trail from the north side of Camp Rotary past the Chapel to join another trail from the south Side of the camp so that the campers would not need to walk the county road get from the north to south side of Camp Rotary. The project took over 1,400 man-hours, 30 large rail road ties, 6 power line poles, 200 feet of rebar and 9 yards of mulch.
