Colin Caggiano of Mason City has earned the highest advancement award the Boy Scouts of America offers to Scouts, the Eagle Scout Award. Colin was recognized in a ceremony on Sunday, June 2nd at 2:00 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church, West, in Springfield. Friends and family were invited to attend.
Colin is one of approximately four percent of all Boy Scouts who attain the eagle rank. Each candidate must advance through six different ranks to the rank of life scout, earn at least 21 merit badges and successfully complete a community or church service project to earn his Eagle. Colin earned 28 merit badges. For his leadership project he chose to construct 15 bluebird houses for a new trail at the Jim Edgar Panther Creek State Park. He also cleaned, repaired, marked and remapped the approximate 100 existing bluebird houses on that property.
