For a Boy Scout one of the highest rankings one can be honored with is the title of Eagle Scout.

Senior David Rider earned this title. The award is not easy to obtain. Only four percent of Boy Scouts receive this award, according to the National Eagle Scout Association. To get this award one must hold a position of leadership and show one is deserving of the award by going up in ranks or doing a project.

“I was really happy and proud knowing that all the work that I put in to being an Eagle Scout and I finally got me there because I have been wanting this for the past three years because I came so close and I knew I had to get it and I did,” Rider said.

Rider did a project to show he was deserving of the ranking. He collected 3,172 pairs of socks for the homeless.

“I wasn’t able to get my goal of 6000 socks,” Rider said, “but I was able to collect a lot of socks and it felt good to collect that many socks for people that needed them.”
