Cherokee Eagle Scout receives two major awards
Eagle Scout Michael Fox, of Troop 182, received both the Walter R. Courtenay Award and the Adams National Eagle Scouts Service Project of the Year Award at this year’s Eagle Scout and Volunteer Banquet.

Over four months, 17-year-old Fox worked alongside volunteers to create an outdoor classroom, rain garden and water cistern at F.H. Jenkins Elementary School in Nashville. The project accrued more than 1,200 volunteer hours.

The outdoor classroom will allow teachers to engage students outside, and the cistern will collect and recycle rainwater from the school’s gutters.

Fox and his volunteers also worked on campus beautification at the school. The Eagle Scout said he plans to go on to college and study engineering.

Cub and Family
Despite threats of hail and tornadoes, about 40 cub scouts and their parents ventured out to Boxwell Reservation in late April for the Cherokee District Cub & Family.

Scouts spent the weekend hiking, fishing along the water’s edge, learning to play marbles, and taking in a game of kickball. Parents and leaders helped their boys hone scouting skills as many learned to cook over an open fire.

The weekend concluded as nearly a dozen cub scouts crossed the bridge in Boy Scouts. Lit by the firelight, dressed in Native American regalia, the Order of the Arrow Ceremonies Team led the rite of passage.

Thanks to the parents and volunteers who made for such a great weekend.
