Eight Young Men from Mansfield Scout Troop 33 Earn Highest Rank Attainable in Scout Program

Eight young men from the Mansfield Troop 33 recently achieved the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout. Since 1912, the Eagle Scout rank has continued to represent a milestone of achievement that is recognized across the country and beyond.

The Scout Law has 12 points to strive for. A scout is: Trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent. It’s not easy, but they just keep trying to be a little bit better every day.

Here’s a glimpse of these eight outstanding young men in our community…

THEIR FEARLESS LEADERS:
While the boys have had many great leaders along the trail to becoming an Eagle Scout, their most recent leaders are Shelby Boseman, Richard Eldredge and Jeremy Turner. All three leaders also had sons in the troop, which made the journey even better. For the last few years, these men have spent hundreds of hours planning weekly activities, monthly camp outs, community service projects, and a yearly High Adventure Camp. The troop also participated in local Merit Badge Colleges,
volunteered at Mission Arlington and served with hurricane relief groups.

Some of the skills and life lessons included canoeing, shooting, archery, first aid, survival, nutrition, service, safety, jet skiing, zip lining, boating, backpacking and much more. One of their favorite activities was the 2019 “50-Miler”; a week-long backpacking trip in the Santa Fe mountains of New Mexico.  
The Mansfield 3rd Ward LDS Troop 33 has consisted of many other youth in Mansfield as well; young men ages 11-18 who have learned how to set and reach goals, serve in the community, and honor God and country.
