Troop 243 of Lafayette came together for an Eagle Court of Honor on Aug. 12 at the Lafayette Christian Church to honor and celebrate four scouts: Cole Mason, Miguel Strittmatter, Tyler Gough and Brady Quinn, each of whom were recognized for earning BSA scouting's highest rank, Eagle Scout. To achieve the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout, these young men completed a rigorous set of requirements, including earning at least 21 merit badges, holding various leadership positions within their troop, and executing a significant community service project to benefit the public or a nonprofit organization.
The Eagle Court of Honor not only celebrates the accomplishments of these exemplary young men but also highlights the dedication of Troop 243 and its commitment to shaping the leaders of tomorrow. Troop 243 has a long history of producing Eagle Scouts since 1964, and it continues to foster a nurturing environment for personal growth and community involvement.
As part of Troop 243, these Scouts have been on a transformative journey, gaining practical life skills and outdoor survival expertise through various adventures and activities. From summer camp at Camp Wolfeboro to overnight camping and backpacking trips, leadership and public speaking training, along with opportunities to give back to their community through service projects. They have each grown into well-rounded and capable individuals.
The Eagle Scout service projects undertaken by these exceptional young men showcased their commitment to making a positive impact on their community and beyond. Cole Mason, for the Thacher School, designed and built an elevated scorekeeper chair, with a built-in table, as well as hosting a gun range cleanup. Miguel Strittmatter repaired and restored the Acalanes High School Water Polo display case. Tyler Gough partnered with Kids Against Hunger to supply ingredients and pack over 40,000 meals for Ukrainian refugees. Brady Quinn cleaned and repainted dugouts and score tables at three baseball fields for the Junior Optimist Baseball League.
Scouts BSA is one of the nation's largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The organization provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of citizenship, participating in their community, and developing personal fitness.
Troop 243 meets weekly at the Lafayette Christian Church at 535 Glenside in Lafayette. For more information on joining the Scouts, you can email the troop at Troop243CA@gmail.com
