Five from Troop 309 achieve Eagle rank together

Families and friends attended a special Eagle Court of Honor Saturday afternoon for no fewer than five members of Boy Scout Troop 309.

Ian Johnson, Kyle Kennedy, Kolton Kopp, Marcos Barbosa and Jack Taylor all shared in the honor of achieving the highest rank in the scouting program. While it’s unusual for five scouts to have their Eagle Court of Honor together, in fact seven members of Troop 309 will be honored in this way by the time the month of June is over—two additional scouts, Riley Harvey and Jacob Crouse—will be earning their Eagle rank in a second Eagle Court of Honor on Sunday, June 22.
