One of our own, 16-year-old Trevor Hokanson is a Junior at Buckeye High School and a Life Scout in Boy Scout Troop 263. In order to achieve the highest rank of Eagle Scout he is required to complete a service project.
Trevor is organizing an event on Friday, October 14 from 10:00am - 4:00pm to provide services to the disadvantaged in downtown Phoenix. He is looking for volunteers to help him serve up to 200 people. Volunteers will help guide the guests to make sure they make the most of the services provided. Some volunteers are needed for kitchen prep, serving, and clean up. There is still a need for volunteers who can provide haircuts.
Any volunteers under the age of 16 will need to shadow an adult. Volunteers 16 to 18 need to use the buddy system. Lunch will be provided for all!

Eagle Scout is the highest achievement or rank attainable in the Boy Scouting program of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). The designation "Eagle Scout" has a long history since its founding over one hundred years ago. Only four percent of Boy Scouts are granted this rank after a lengthy review process. The requirements necessary to achieve this rank take years to fulfill. Since its founding, the Eagle Scout rank has been earned by more than two million young men.
Requirements include earning at least 21 merit badges. 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. Additional recognition can be earned through Eagle Palms, awarded for completing additional tenure, leadership, and merit badge requirements.
