Three Scouts received their Eagle award on Memorial Day
On Memorial Day, May 27, Grant Kunnemann, Chris Herzog, and Ryan Bullard of Troop 1631 received their Eagle award, in a Court of Honor attended by family and friends. The invocation was given by Ryan’s aunt, Colonel Jeanne Arnold of the United States Army.
These young men, recent Clements graduates, began their scouting journey in 2001 as cub scouts in Pack 1882 at Commonwealth Elementary. Their path to Eagle involved numerous camping nights, merit badges, high adventure treks such as Northern Tier, Philmont, and Sea Base, leadership activities, and numerous volunteer hours.
As part of the Eagle requirement, each boy was required to complete an Eagle project:
Chris led a group of scouts and friends to build a five structure agility course in the Sugar Land Memorial Dog Park. He also constructed a bat habitat near the Brazos River.
Grant led a group of scouts and volunteers in the renovation of the playground at First Colony Christian Church. This included repairing and staining the playground equipment, adding a fence and gate, and building two benches.
Ryan’s project involved the construction of a glider bench and the repairing and painting of tables for CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate Association).
In the Fall, these young men will attend the following universities: Chris-Texas A&M University; Grant-Texas Tech University; Ryan-The University of Texas at Austin.
