Name: Seth Williams
School: Senior at Oconee County High School
Accomplishment: Seth has been a scout since he joined Cub Scout Pack #80 while in the first grade at Colham Ferry Elementary School. He left as the most decorated cub scout at that time, including achieving Cub Scouts' highest award, the "Arrow of Light."
He crossed over into Boy Scouts when he started at Oconee County Middle School by joining Troop #149. In 2010, the troop grew so large, they had to split, so he moved with the new Troop #537, sponsored by Briarwood Baptist Church.
One requirement needed to become an Eagle Scout, is to earn 21 merit badges. Seth earned 61, plus six "Eagle Palms." For his Eagle Project, Seth led a crew to help clear debris from the Watkinsville Cemetery. He was recognized for his project by Mayor Joe Walter at his final Council Meeting on Dec. 14, 2011. Seth earned his Eagle Scout Rank in January 2012 --during the 100th year of Eagle Scouts. Nationally, only five percent of Scouts earn this ranking.
Key to Awesomeness: Seth is now in training to be an assistant scoutmaster for his troop. He is a member of Poplar Springs Baptist Church, the Chess Club at OCHS and will graduate in May.
Seth's Eagle Court of Honor will be held on March 25 from 1:30 - 3 p.m. at Briarwood Baptist Church. There will be a dessert reception following the ceremony.
Seth's friends, family, former pack members, troops and supporters, are cordially invited (including all of you who have bought BSA Popcorn, BBQ and Pancake Breakfast tickets and BSA Camp Cards from him!) Please RSVP by calling (706) 769 - 8780, or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Seth thanks all of you, for helping him to achieve this honor.
Of his achievement, his scoutmaster Geof Gilland said,"Everyone should be inspired by Seth's story and keep up the great work!"
