The Star:

Less than five percent of Boy Scouts go on to become Eagle Scouts.But that didn’t stop more than a dozen scouts from Troop 10 from receiving the honor.

The kids’ hard work and dedication not only earned them a prestigious position, but it set a milestone for the troop, which is sponsored by the Leawood Lions Club.

Their graduation on Sunday marked the 300th Eagle Scout to emerge from Troop 10 since it was chartered in 1975.

“It’s fun to watch these boys grow up and I’m absolutely proud of them because it’s a long trail to Eagle,” said John Ahart, the troop’s assistant scoutmaster. “And we had around 50 alumni show up because they were curious to see how the troop evolved and how big it has gotten.”

Proud parents, awed alumni, and inspired siblings filled the auditorium at Blue Valley Northwest High School last weekend.
