CHS Junior Michael Woolverton And Senior Jack Rittenberry Earn The Rank Of Eagle Scout

CHS junior Michael Woolverton and senior Jack Rittenberry, members of Boy Scout Troop 7, earned the rank of Eagle Scout at a ceremony March 8 at St. Aloysius.

Woolverton (pictured) is an honor roll student, a percussionist with the marching band, a student ambassador and a member of the martial arts and arts clubs. He is also a member of the St. Aloysius High School Youth Group Leadership Team and a cellist. His parents are Stephanie and Greg Woolverton.

Rittenberry (not pictured) is an honor student and a member of Youth and Government, National Honor Society and the drama club. He plans to attend Western Kentucky University, where he has been accepted into the Chinese Flagship Program. He is the son of Susan and William Todd Rittenberry.

To earn Eagle rank, a Scout must progress through six ranks, earn a minimum of 21 merit badges, serve in several leadership positions within his troop and provide service to the community. In addition, a Scout must plan, develop and give leadership to a service project for a religious or community organization.

Also recognized at the March 8 ceremony were CHS Seniors Nick Dileo and Ethan Ford, who earned Eagle rank last fall, and Ethan Ford’s brother Josh Ford, a junior at Baton Rouge Magnet High School.
