Chester/Deep River Boy Scout Troop 13 congratulates Kenneth Andrew Peterson for earning the rank of eagle scout. An Eagle Scout Court of Honor was held for Peterson on June 9 at the Deep Valley Regional High School Cafeteria.
To become an eagle scout, Peterson earned 43 merit badges and advanced through the seven scout ranks by learning scout and life skills while simultaneously providing leadership to his troop and service to his community. One of the final requirements for the eagle rank is to show leadership in and complete a service project that benefits the scouts’s community, school, or religious institution. While a boy scout in Troop 13, Peterson attended the 2017 National Boy Scout Jamboree and National Youth Leadership Training, and is a brotherhood member in the Order of the Arrow.
Peterson showed leadership over others by developing and implementing a plan to clear away overgrown brush and assemble three metal benches to be installed in a concrete base near the Valley Regional High School tennis courts. The benches provide an aesthetically pleasing seating option alongside the tennis courts. The completed project enhances the community and guests who use the tennis courts at the high school.
