LEBANON - For the first time in two decades Lebanon has its own Eagle Scout.
Colby Amidon of Lebanon Boy Scout Troop #369 was installed on Saturday during a Court of Honor ceremony at the Hanson School.
Amidon, who built a set of bleachers and two octagonal picnic tables for Bull Memorial Field for his Eagle Scout project, showed a lot of determination in his pursuit of Scouting's highest honor, said Scoutmaster Norm Sirois Jr.
"I was proud for him for his ability to work through and improve his work ethic and dedication," Sirois said today.
Sirois, who has been Scoutmaster since 2012, said there are several other Scouts waiting in the wings to pursue Eagle status.
Senior Patrol Leader Eli Tetreault presided over the ceremony, during which Amidon presented a slide show containing photos of his many Scouting adventures and projects.
Amidon was officially presented with his Eagle Scout pin by his parents, Matt and Shelley Amidon, during the ceremony.
State Representative Karen Gerrish was also there to present Amidon with a Legislative proclamation honoring his achievement.
