On Sunday, January 15 at St Mark's Methodist church there was a Eagle Court of Honor for William Dixon and Seth Cantrell. Many friends, family, and fellow scouts attended. William and Seth achieved the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout. In order to achieve this rank a Life Scout must complete a service project. The project must be helpful to the community. In completing the project the scout must demonstrate planning and leadership skills. William chose as his project building chimney swift tower for Harmony school.
