Rosenberg Boy Scout Troop 1630 recently held an Eagle Court of Honor for 7 scouts that achieved the rank of Eagle from 2011 to 2013. On Sunday, July 28, the troop along with family and friends, gathered at Holy Cross Episcopal Church in Sugar Land to honor Tanner Feldhoff, Ryan Grissett, Troy Hausler, Mitchell Mercado, Taylor Penny, Tyler Richards and Jonathan Willis. Troop Leader Larry Grissett coordinated the event and former troop member and Eagle Scout, Rory Conley, lead the ceremony.
As part of the Eagle requirement each scout was required to complete an Eagle project. The Eagle projects included building a butterfly garden for Hutchinson Elementary in Rosenberg (Jonathan Willis), paving a handicap walkway at Sutton Elementary in Houston (Mitchell Mercado), renovating the Harmony Baptist Church Cemetery in Navasota (Tyler Richards), erecting three crosses for Trinity Lutheran Church Cemetery (Troy Hausler), building a picnic area for the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center in Houston (Ryan Grissett), building a shed for Lutherhill Camp in LaGrange (Tanner Feldhoff), and restoring a WWII era cannon for VFW Post 3903 in Rosenberg (Taylor Penny).
The 7 Eagle Scouts worked on a total of 107 service projects in addition to their Eagle projects and represent more than 600 service hours donated to the community. Troop 1630 meets at First United Methodist Church in Rosenberg.
