Eagle Scouts Can Come in Threes

Logan, Tate and Trent


Tate and Trent Rees, sons of Scott and Tammy Rees of Berthoud, and grandsons of Mark and Patty Rees of Lamar, earned the rank of Eagle Scout in a ceremony at the Berthoud United Methodist Church on Sunday July 15, 2018. They join their brother Logan in attaining this coveted rank in scouting.

This is the end of a long journey through Cub Scouts, Webelo Scouts, and Boy Scouts, that started when these boys were in the first grade. The rank of Eagle is Scouting’s highest achievement, earned by only about 4% of boys in Scouting. On their way to this honor, Scouts must complete a minimum of 21 merit badges, including many important life skills, including personal finance, first aid, and land navigation.

Scouting offers many other exciting opportunities including Philmont Scout ranch, where scouts backpack as many as 100 miles over 10 days, Northern Tier, where scouts paddle canoes for 60+ miles, and many other summer camps. Boy Scouts, it is a largely “boy led” organization, and boys learn to manage tasks, take leadership roles, and perform many hours of volunteer service time in their communities.
