In a formal ceremony this past Saturday at Fellowship Baptist Church in Witcherville, Wyatt Manes, and Lane Mays were pinned, and decorated as Eagle Scouts. This achievement is the highest rank of the Boy Scouts and is no easy task.
The level of Eagle Scout takes an average of 7 years to complete, while earning 21 merit badges and tasked with fulfilling an Eagle Scout project. Only 3% in the entire Boy Scout fraternity actually makes Eagle Scout rank.

Wyatt built food pantry boxes where he placed them at several different locations in Witcherville, Huntington and Dayton. He then filled the boxes with food for the needy. He coordinated with several local churches to assist in restocking them.

Lane Mays (Center) is joined by his parents, Brent and Charla Mays.

Lane did a beautification project at the Pleasant Grove Cemetery where he rebuilt the Veterans memorial, repainted the gate, and cleaned all the headstones. Then, he removed a massive tree that had been hit by lightning. This project too over 100 man hours to complete.
Seth Mays, gave the newly decorated Eagle Scouts a personal “charge” where he further instructed both his younger brother, Lane and Manes a directive of his personal experience, and what is to be expected of them not only as elder Boy Scouts, but to carry the proud Eagle Scout code.
Troop #330 has spots to fill for any boy who is 11 years old or has finished 5th grade. Parents can contact Gary Martin at (479) 461-3860 for more information.
