Local boys earn Eagle Scout rank

Taeg Chaston and Ammon Davis started as Cub Scouts

A special Eagle Court of Honor was held in Washougal Jan. 24 recognizing two local teens who earned the rank of Eagle Scout.

Surrounded by friends, family and community members, Taeg Chaston and Ammon Davis were honored for completing all requirements to achieve the highest rank in Scouting.

Members of Unit 549, sponsored by the Mt. Norway Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, they have been working together since they were 8-year-old Cub Scouts.

One of the major requirements to earn the rank of Eagle is to lead a service project that benefits the community. In this case both projects were done in Eldridge Park, which is part of the Campen Creek Greenway in Washougal.

Davis built a set of stairs on a park trail, while Chaston built bridges over streams on a walking trail.

In their promise of life-long service, both plan to serve missions for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Davis will begin serving in South Carolina in March, while Chaston hopes to begin serving later this year after graduating from Washougal High School.
