Four Students Earn Eagle Scout Recognition
Posted on 03/08/2022
Four CRHS students become part of an elite group of Eagle Scouts.
Four Crystal River High Schools students were publicly recognized Tuesday afternoon during the regular school board meeting for their continuous commitment to our community.
Dr. Scott Hebert, Chief Academic Officer, for Citrus Schools introduced the students and talked about their accomplishments:
"Today I am here to recognize four local students that have eared the rank of Eagle Scout.  This award is the highest achievement rank as part of the Boy Scouts of Americas.  Becoming an Eagle Scout takes perseverance and hard work.

Each scout must:

  • be active in the troop for at least six months as a life scout
  • show dedication to the Scout Oath and Scout Law
  • provide references from family, work, church, and other community groups
  • earn 21 merit badges
  • complete other requirements 

One of the key activities to earn the rank of Eagle Scout is to Propose, Plan, and Carry out an Eagle Service Project.  I will ask each of the boys to share their project with you today.

Only 4 percent of Boy Scouts earn this rank and the students we recognize today will become a part of that elite group of scouts.

The students today will join some well-known Eagle Scouts, such as:
  • Neil Armstrong- The first man on the moon
  • J. Willard Marriott- Chairman of Marriott International
  • And Steven Spielberg- Academy Award winning Film Director

Please join us in congratulating the following students: 

Austin Edwards, Carson Edwards, Ichabod Borton, and Malachi Ridge.
