Scouts Earn Eagle Rank

Boy Scouts of America Troop 3, sponsored by Pleasant Grove United Methodist Church in La-Grange, under the leadership of Mark Webb (Scout Master) recently presented two ( Troup County High School Seniors) Pearson Strickland (Son of Travis and Natalie Strickland) and Eli Thrailkill (Son of Pete and Julie Thrailkill) with their Eagle Rank. That is the highest rank that can be earned in Scouting. One of the many requirements for earning the rank of Eagle is to do a community service project. Pearson’s project was to construct a new pump house for Pleasant Grove United Methodist Church and Eli’s project was to construct shelving on three walls in the quilting closet for the quilting group at Pleasant Grove Methodist Church.
