Seven Eagle Scouts Soar to New Heights: Impacting Communities Across Phoenix Metro

Michael, Johnathan, Nikolas, Damian, Thomas, Carter, and Oliver have showcased exemplary dedication, leadership, and service, collectively clocking over 556 hours to benefit Arizona communities. From revitalizing playgrounds to aiding shelters, their incredible projects truly reflect the heart of Scouting.

Congratulations to seven new Eagle Scouts in the Grand Canyon Council, Central Phoenix area, as each led their teams of Scouts and volunteers through completing their project, logging collectively just over 556 service hours around the Council and completing all the Eagle requirements to achieve this great honor! 

Their dedication, planning, hard work and leadership has truly paid off, benefiting each of these organizations listed below, here in Arizona. Along with their commitment to community service, learning and growing their outdoor skills, personal development, Order of the Arrow membership and earning numerous merit badges, each one of these young men exemplifies the values of Scouting and what it means to earn the rank of Eagle Scout.

Of course, they gained this knowledge and experience with the help of their parents, friends, family members, troop leaders along with dedicated Scouter volunteers to help guide them along their journey. We also want to thank our dedicated volunteers for participating to help facilitate each individual Board of Review. We would also like to thank Camelback Church of Christ, Phoenix, for hosting this special gathering. Soaring to new heights, we are all incredibly proud of each of their accomplishments and we wish him continued success in their future endeavors. Congratulations, Michael, Johnathan, Nikolas, Damian, Thomas, Carter and Oliver. We are all so proud of you and look forward to hearing what comes next for you on your next journey. Soar High Eagle Scouts!
