Troop 75 has another Boy Scout that rose in the ranks to Eagle Scout and his project helped the members of the Bellbrook Presbyterian Church. Sean Hearrell received his Eagle Scout Certificate of Achievement presented by Mayor, Robert Baird on Monday, May 19, 2014.
“It always impresses me on how many Eagle Scouts and projects they have done in the Bellbrook community,” said Mayor Baird. “For a community of our size, we must have one of the higher numbers of Eagle Scouts in this area.”
Hearrell decided he would remodel the Presbyterian Church's bathrooms with new paint and new flooring. “Generally, they [the bathrooms] were not in bad shape, but very outdated. So, I decided it would be nice to them a more traditional look- something kind of timeless,” Hearrell said. “I painted and put down a new floor that would hold up a little longer, look nicer and would be easier to clean. It was a very difficult project only because it was so tedious. I can’t take all the credit; I had several volunteers helping me and several adult scout leaders.”
Hearrell’s leadership skills have been exhibited by excelling in the Boy Scouts throughout the years. He has served as senior patrol leader, assistant patrol leader and patrol leader. He has been a historian, librarian, and a Chaplin aide. He became a member of the Order of the Arrow, when he was a member of Cub Scouts Pack 175 and earned his Arrow of Light badge. He has attended several elite summer camps with Troop 75, including Chief Logan Reservation in Ray, Ohio and the Haliburton Scout Reserve in Canada. Hearrell’s accomplishments do not just stem from the Boy Scouts but also branch to his roots at school. He is on the Honor Roll and is a member of the Honor Society.
“We are fortunate to have you as a member of our community,” Mayor Baird told Hearrell. “We wish you great success in the future and congratulations.”
Hearrell stood proud in front of the council members and accepted his- achievement award from the Mayor. “I’m very proud that I was able to achieve such a prestigious rank in scouting.”
