• Five seniors at Rosalia High School were recently awarded the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest rank given in the Boy Scouts. The boys are members of Troop 588.
Casey Brown, the son of Pat and Tami Brown, built a new fence for the Holy Rosary Cemetery for his project. Brown designed the fence, put together the budget and organized volunteers to complete his project.
Tom Carrothers designed and constructed flagpole holders and installed the holders on light posts in downtown Rosalia. His goal was to create an efficient way to set up the flags and to display them in a more uniform and patriotic manner.
He is the son of Jane Carrothers of Rosalia and Chad Carrothers of Richland.
Jared Hereford, the son of Jed and Trish Hereford of Thornton, organized the removal and replacement of the home run fence at Rosalia’s softball field in the city park for his project. To complete the project, support poles were dug up and re-set into concrete and gaps in the fence have been covered with plywood.
Flash Hodges designed and manufactured a flag pole at the Malden-Pine City Gun Club for his Eagle Scout project. The flag pole, built from scratch, stands 30 feet high.
He is the son of Brad and Teresa Hodges of Oakesdale, Wash.
Nathan Richards created a memorial project for the Malden community at the Malden Volunteer Fire Department, coordinating with local leaders, firefighters and other Scouts.
It began four years ago, utilizing memorial donations received after his grandfather died. His initial project began as a memorial flagpole and public information sign. The flagpole was completed first, then the public information sign, which is now a centralized, illuminated, covered location to post notices and information beneficial to the Malden community.
He is the son of Dan and Tami (VanDyke) Harwood of Malden, Wash.
