Local teen earns Eagle Scout rank
Farmington resident Bryan Scavone recently earned the Eagle Scout rank, the highest award available in the Boy Scouts of America. He received his Eagle Scout rank at an Eagle Board of Review Dec. 13, 2016.
Scavone, a senior at Farmington High School, joined Boy Scouts at age six.
Scavone led other scouts in building eight benches for an outdoor classroom at Meadowview Elementary in Farmington.
Boy Scouts of America has awarded the Eagle rank to more than two million scouts since 1912. The rank of Eagle is achieved by an individual earning a minimum of 22 merit badges and demonstrating scout spirit and leadership in his troop. The scout must also complete a community project.
