Local Scout achieves Eagle rank


Nick Perkins, 17, received Scouting’s highest rank, Eagle Scout, in a ceremony on April 14 at Traders Point Christian Church. Perkins is a junior at Zionsville Community High School and is the son of Mark and Jane Perkins of Zionsville. He earned the rank after demonstrating leadership in his troop, completing the required 21 merit badges and completing an extensive community service project where he organized more than 40 volunteers in planting 50 trees in Zionsville’s Turkey Foot Park as well as coordinated a garlic mustard cleanup effort in the park. Perkins has been a Scout since 2002 and has served his troop as patrol leader, senior patrol leader and historian. Perkins is a member of Troop 804 in the North Star District, and his scoutmasters are Ron Penczek and Mick Witte. Only four percent of Scouting’s national membership attains the Eagle badge.
