CHS Freshman Thomas Hodgson Earns The Rank Of Eagle Scout

CHS freshman Thomas Hodgson earned the rank of Eagle Scout with Troop 888 on Feb. 20, 2018. He is the 125th Eagle Scout with Troop 888. Thomas is the son of Robert and Isabel Hodgson of Prairieville, LA. He is an honor roll student, and a member of the Spanish Club and Martial Arts Club.

To earn this 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.

For his project Thomas planned, administered and led a group of scouts to install a living rosary garden at Most Blessed Sacrament Church for all parishioners to enjoy. The garden is in the shape of a rosary with large stepping stones representing each decade. The center of the garden is adorned with a statue of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary.
