Spread the love

The newest Eagle Scout was recognized during a ceremony this past Saturday at Dublin First Baptist Church. Each Boy Scout has different merit badges and service requirements to advance through to obtain a higher rank in the organization. Tenderfoot, Second Class, First Class are three of the ranks a young Scout must pass through in order to advance to Star Scout, Life Scout and then the highest rank of Eagle Scout. 

This past Saturday Channing Robeson was recognized for obtaining Eagle Scout. His parents, Kevin and Thelma Robeson were also honored at the Eagle Scout Ceremony. Before receiving this honor Channing had to complete a community service project. Channing created revitalization at the Dublin baseball park as his service project. 

Members of Channing’s Scout Troop, West Bladen High School Principal Peggy Hester, Youth leader, Ben Tyler and others commented on Channing’s great character and dedicated service during Saturday’s ceremony. 

Channing humbly said during the service, “It’s because of y’all; I stand before you today as an Eagle. Thank you.”

After the ceremony there was a time for fellowship and refreshments. Displayed with merit badges and awards were two letters of congratulations, one from Charles Paul, President of the Cape Fear Council and the other was from Johnathan P. Widmark, CEO of the Boy Scouts.
