Tualatin Troop 530 is proud to announce its largest group of Eagle Scouts in the city’s history! Established in 1952, Tualatin’s first Boy Scout Troop 530 has had a total of sixty three Eagle Scouts since 1967. It is quite the accomplishment that during the past two years, there has been ten young men who have obtained the highest achievement or rank attainable in the Boy Scouting program of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA).
The designation “Eagle Scout” was founded over one hundred years ago.
Only four percent of Boy Scouts are granted this rank after a lengthy review process. The Eagle Scout must demonstrate Scout Spirit, an ideal attitude based upon the Scout Oath and Law, service, and leadership. This includes an extensive service project that the Scout plans, organizes, leads, and manages. Eagle Scouts are presented with a medal and a badge that visibly recognizes the accomplishments of the Scout.
The following youth are all Tualatin High School students or are recent 2017 graduates: Noah Wise, Devin Boatsman, Sean Chamberlin, Carter Frainey, Nick Oubre, Matthew Dannemiller, Liam Davis, Scott Richardson, Luke Winkler, and Drew Wise. Many of these projects benefited Tualatin High School, Byrom Elementary School, Tualatin Schoolhouse Food Pantry, World of Speed, First United Methodist Church, City of Durham, and surrounding City of Tualatin’s local natural habitats and parks. Scoutmaster Lance Lewellan and previous Scoutmaster Norm Dannemiller have had a great group of Assistant Scoutmasters to support these young men in their journey to excellence, including Vicki Boatsman, Matt Winkler, Steve Oubre, Brent Husband, Kevin Kneeshaw, and Joe Davis. Congratulations to all of these young men! For additional information about Troop 530 go to sites.google.com/site/tualatinorbsatroop530/.
