A Kindergartner Becomes an Eagle Scout

Well, he was ONCE my kindergartner!

Now he is in high school and on Sunday, I was honored to attend his Eagle ceremony. I thought he was the first of my students, but then I remembered two others that I know of who attained this, the highest rank in Boy Scouts. There was another of my former students there Sunday who earned his  Eagle at the same time but had not had his ceremony yet. So that will make four that I know of who have earned this achievement but this was the first ceremony I have attended for one of my kids.

Here he is accepting his Eagle badge.

In a time when I occasionally read about former students in the newspaper in stories that do not do them credit, it is wonderful to know many have done very well for themselves.

I love it. It is nice to see an upbeat story about the kids you know and have touched their lives.
