Adam Lauer '20 Earns Eagle Scout Rank
Posted 05/04/2017 07:35AM

Adam Lauer ’20 was recognized for achieving the rank of Eagle Scout at a Court of Honor held at Whitfield School Saturday, April 15, 2017. Adam is a member of Boy Scout Troop 496.

To earn the Eagle Scout rank, the highest advancement rank in Scouting, a Boy Scout must fulfill requirements in the areas of leadership, service, and outdoor skills. To demonstrate proficiency in these areas, a number of specific skills must be demonstrated and other requirements fulfilled to advance through the ranks—Scout, Tenderfoot, Second Class, First Class, Star, Life, and Eagle. Each Eagle Scout candidate must also plan, develop, and lead an approved service project benefitting a school, religious institution, or other community organization.

Only about five percent of all Boy Scouts earn the Eagle Scout rank.

For his community service project, Adam built a series of sensory play stations for TASK (Team Activities for Special Kids), an organization dedicated to enriching the lives of kids with special needs by providing year-round instructional sports programs and social opportunities.
