Troop 72G Introduces Three More Female Eagle Scouts

Three area girls have earned the Eagle Scout rank, Boy Scouting’s highest. Doing so typically takes several years and requires earning 21 or more badges plus completing a project.

The girls are among the first 87 female Eagle earners in the Circle Ten Council of the BSA. Two of them, Olivia Louise Slaughter and Zoe Elise Lawyer, are founding members of their troop, joining it in the fifth grade.
