Culver Eagle Scouts Honored

It was a special "Court of Honor" last week for four local scouts from Culver City Troop 108 who achieved the rank of Eagle Scout, the top rank in the Boy Scouts of America. Achieving the rank requires intense work along with a service project where the candidate for Eagle Scout will "plan, develop, and give leadership to others in a service project helpful to any religious institution, any school, or your community." The project must benefit an organization other than the Boy Scouts of AmericaThis is a significant accomplishment that only approximately 4% of Scouts achieve nationally. The four attend Culver City High. Culver City Mayor, Jim B. Clarke presented a proclamation on behalf of the Culver City Council. Other letters of recognition were awarded from US Senator Dianne Feinstein, US House of Representatives member Karen Bass, and Los Angeles Board of Supervisors member Mark Ridley-Thomas. Troop 108 Assistant Scoutmaster Tony Barreto presided at the event on behalf of Scoutmaster Dan O'Brien and former Scoutmaster Peter Stewart. PHOTOCAPTION: PAGE 1 PHOTO: Eagle Scouts (l-r): Max L.P.

How can they appear in public in those absurd costumes with those huge blue silk kerchiefs fastened around their necks? Those scarves are over the top.
