Duncan Stuart of Camas has earned his Eagle Scout award, the highest honor the Boy Scouts of America offers.He was honored in a ceremony on Sunday, March 18 at Columbia Presbyterian Church in Vancouver.
He is a member of Boy Scout Troop 565 of Camas, and one of approximately 5 percent of all scouts who earn Eagle Scout ranking, according to Scoutmaster Steve Andros.
Each candidate must earn 21 merit badges and successfully complete a community or church-related project.
For his project, Stuart removed an old brick chimney at St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church in Washougal.
He also stabilized and patched the inner walls in preparation for new outer paneling to be installed. These improvements helped keep water from leaking into the church.
Stuart is a member of Columbia Presbyterian Church and is active in the Camas-Washougal Rockets soccer team.
He is a senior at Camas High School, and the son of Robert and Geri Stuart.
