Michael Argentine, 18, of Zionsville has received Scouting’s highest rank of Eagle Scout.
Argentine, a member of Troop 358, is a senior at Zionsville Community High School and has been involved in Boy Scouts for six years. Argentine achieved the Eagle rank after demonstrating leadership as a senior patrol leader, quartermaster and scribe before completing his Eagle project.
Only 4 percent of Scouting’s national membership attains the rank of Eagle.
For his Eagle Scout Service Project, Argentine built a 27-foot long wooden walkway at Zionsville Presbyterian Church that keeps churchgoers out of vehicle pathways and provides gradual steps and sturdy handrails.
There were nearly 24 volunteers who assisted Argentine in completing his service project last fall.
