Johnathan Johnson, 17, a resident of Sulphur Springs and a Life rank Scout in Boy Scouts of America – Troop 322 of Greenville, has completed his Eagle Leadership Service Project. He and fellow Scouts in his Troop installed a flag pole at the Union Community Cemetery in Hopkins County.
The project took many hours of planning, gathering supplies, and two Saturdays of leading his peers in the work to complete. He dedicated his project to all those in the community who have served this nation in the military. The dedication took place on Veterans Day with community Veterans in attendance. Representatives of the Cemetery Board expressed their appreciation for the project.
Johnson plans to complete his Eagle Scout rank requirements in the spring of 2018, and then enlist in the United States Air Force after he graduate his senior year in 2019.
