Five young men of Boy Scout Troop 992 of Sugar Land have officially been recognized for earning the Boy Scouts of America’s highest advancement, the Eagle Scout Award.
Troop 992’s newest Eagle Scouts are Carson Theodore Fronefield, 19, of Sugar Land; Shane V. Jacob, 18, of Richmond; Ethan Edward Fronefield, 17, of Sugar Land; Abhi Dewan, 17, of Sugar Land; and Joshua Lozano, 18, of Sugar Land.
Each candidate earned a minimum of 21 merit badges and successfully completed a community or religious-affiliated service project to earn his Eagle. The projects were completed over the last 18 months; the Eagles received formal recognition for their achievements at a Court of Honor hosted by their families on July 22, at Troop 992’s charter organization, Faith Lutheran Church of Sugar Land. Only about 6 percent of all Scouts achieve the Eagle rank, according to the Sam Houston Area Council.
Carson Fronefield mapped invasive plant species at Sugar Land’s 754-acre Cullinan Park. Joshua Lozano designed picnic tables for Bethel Ministries in Stafford. Three of the Scouts’ projects benefited The Riding Therapy Center of Victoria: Shane Jacob designed 140 linear feet of fencing; Ethan Fronefield designed a walk-in horse shelter; and Abhi Dewan designed a 150-foot pasture fence and horse gate. Each Scout led a team of volunteers comprised of community members and fellow Scouts to execute these projects.
The Eagle Scouts expressed their gratitude to Troop 992, Faith Lutheran’s Pastor Ken Sinclair and their current and former scoutmasters, Stephen Fronefield and Mike Lyons, respectively.
Carson studies biochemistry/pre-veterinary medicine at Tarleton State University in Stephenville, where he is entering his second year; Shane will enter Houston Baptist University this fall; Abhi and Ethan each will be seniors at Dulles High School; and Joshua will be a freshman at Baylor University this fall.
The Eagle Scouts’ proud parents are Jyoti and Ashwani Dewan of Sugar Land; Diane and Stephen Fronefield of Sugar Land; Ann and Jackson V. Jacob of Richmond; and Linda and J.R. Lozano of Sugar Land.
