Staff report

Boy Scouts of America Troop 12 in San Juan Capistrano recently honored 12 Scouts for their dedication to the program and presented them with the Eagle Scout rank, the “highest honor” for the organization.

“Over the past two years, 20 Troop 12 scouts earned Eagle rank, but due to the pandemic, the 2020 Eagle Court of Honor never occurred,” a news release said. “A number of those Scouts returned to attend a May 1 Eagle Court of Honor, along with the newest flock of Eagle Scouts who had to navigate pandemic headwinds to complete their Eagle projects this past year.”

The 12 Eagle Scouts are Chase Arndt, Austin Ashizawa, Chase Barry, Tobias Dervartanian, Matthew Duplissey, Daniel Fournier, John Gaita, Russell Mo, Noah Porter, Russell Ryan, James Sherwood, and Jeremy Stoner.

  • We are a dying breed. I became an Eagle at age 12 (one month short of 13) in 1962. Kudos to all those who persevered and achieved. The skills they learned may not always be applicable to today’s world, but the lessons they learned about leadership, teamwork, and winning by continued effort are. Yes, some adults inexcusably abused some children, but the same can be said for doctors, lawyers, clergy, entertainers, politicians, media personalities, etc. No group is free of bad apples. Scouting builds character while having fun. Support it, do not kill it.
