Two members of Boy Scout Troop 61 in Republic, Wash., were honored at their Eagle Scout Court of Honor the evening of Saturday, Aug. 25, at Republic Elementary School. Scouts Dan Slagle and Devin Poore, members of Immaculate Conception Parish, Republic, and St. Patrick Parish, Curlew, were recognized for the completion of the Eagle Leadership projects and dedication.
Slagle, 17, son of Rob and Patty Slagle and grandson of Jack and Betty Heeney, Colville, is a senior at Republic High School. For his Eagle service project Slagle restored the 60 Republic High School track hurdles and built a bench with remaining supplies for spectators to watch. Hurdles were completed prior to the 2012 season.
Poore, 18, son of Wilbur and Caroline Poore, is attending the University of Washington. Poore renovated the amphitheater at Curlew State Park earlier this summer, including, cleaning and clearing the existing area, building six new benches, and creating and mounting a sign which withstood the July 20 storm with no damage.
The troop is under the direction of Scoutmaster Tom Severns and Assistant Scoutmaster Diane Brown.
The Scouts both worked through their 21 required badges and projects prior to their 18th birthdays.
