  Tyler Newsom, a Waynesville High School freshman, also received his Eagle Scout Badge as part of the process.
  Over the course of two different weekends the Scouts did site preparation that included dirt work and concrete, for the installation of a new flag pole for the Lions Club.
   Matt Page, the Scout Master of the troop, has been involved with Boy Scouts for ten years. He noted that it was Newsom’s responsibility to coordinate the event. “That’s part of his project,” Page said of the Eagle Badge.

Lions Club recites the Pledge of Allegiance
with the Boy Scouts as the flag is being raised.


 In a ceremony on Saturday, the 2nd of March, Newsom, along with fellow Scout members Jonathan Page, Tyr Britt, and Triston Mentzer, helped Lions Club members set the new pole. A new flag was raised as members recited the Pledge of Allegiance.
  “There’s many different requirements,” Newsom said of the achievement. “You have to do a service project, you have to serve as leadership with the troop for six months, and then you have to get letters of recommendation.” He also mentioned some personal goals he had to attain. Newsom has been in Boy Scouts since he was in first grade. The trips and outdoor activities are his favorite part of Scouting.
