Joseph Passes Eagle Scout Board Review

Mel wrote in this week to let us know that Joseph Sommerer passed his Eagle Scout Board of Review on October 19th. The US and Missouri flags were flown over the Missouri Capital in his honor on that day. Joseph will have an official Court of Honor in a few months when all of the paperwork comes in.

Joseph Sommerer Eagle Scout

I don’t know how many of you have been involved in Scouting, but this is a rare and high achievement. Just look at this list of Eagle Scouts to see what I mean. As a teacher, I occasionally have students who are working on their Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project, and they have always been the very best students.

I wonder if we could get Joseph to tell us about his Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project? Oh, and how many of you remember Joseph more like this?

  7. For my Eagle Project I organized the building of a handicapped accessible picnic table for my church, Cedar Grove Baptist Church. I helped my dad and Jim Sommerer do the welding of the frame, painted it, and other scouts helped me put the wood on the top. I will try to get a picture uploaded.

  8. Way to go Joseph!! We are so very proud of you. A LOT of work and dedication went into that special achievement. I read somewhere that it’s one of the only accomplishments you can complete when you’re 14, that still means something when you’re 50. Congratulations on a job well done!
