Seniors Ivey Smith and Andrew Rippel Earn The Rank of Eagle Scout

CHS seniors Ivey Smith and Andrew Rippel earned the rank of Eagle Scout. 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.

A part of Troop 14 out of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, Ivey’s Eagle Scout project was to create a pet cemetery where parishioners of St. Luke’s can bury the remains of their pets.

Andrew, a part of Troop 42, remodeled and repainted three classrooms at Denham Springs High School that were damaged as a result of the 2016 flood.
