Senior Paul Brown Earns The Rank Of Eagle Scout

CHS senior Paul Brown earned the rank of Eagle Scout with Troop 490. To earn the rank of Eagle Scout, a Scout must progress thru 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 Paul’s service project he built a ‘Buddy Bench’ for the St. Jean Vianney Elementary School playground. The bench provides children a place to sit when they need a friend at recess. Many other schools across the country have placed these benches in their play areas. The idea behind the project is to teach students to be aware to include others.
