Anker attains new rank
Boy Scout Troop 936 and Mayor Jim Brainard celebrated with Carlton Anker on Feb. 12 as he attained the rank of Eagle Scout. Following a scouting career spanning multiple leadership positions, high-adventure trips and an “ax incident” that sent him to the emergency room, Anker’s Eagle service project was the refurbishment of the oft-overlooked Poplar Ridge Cemetery on Six Points Road in Carmel. He mustered capital and human resources, and led a group of his peers to build and install benches, to replace a drain culvert and to revamp the gravel driveway and parking lot. Anker is the elder son of Terry and Carolyn Anker, and is a Carmel High School sophomore.
