Junior Sam Moran is an Eagle Scout. His role in his troop is to help young scouts learn all kinds of skills and to give them guidance. He currently has 21 badges, and he attends meetings every Thursday at the Methodist Church. His Eagle Scout project was building kayak racks near the Clinton Marina to make it easier for people to transfer their kayaks in and out out of water.
Junior Aidan Esposito has 32 merit badges. His Eagle Scout project was to dig a trench and put piping/wires through it so electricians could come to Pierson and help with the electricity. He also does Scouts to help out the community, plan trips, and for something to do in his free time.
Senior Andrew Tessman earned a total of 54 badges, and his job is to help out younger scouts achieve what he has already achieved and act as a leader in the troop.
