Justin Barr named Eagle Scout

Justin Barr of Boy Scouts Troop 102 of Marion passed his Eagle Scout Board of Review on March 13, completing the requirements to earn the Eagle Scout award, the highest award in Boy Scouts.

The review was an interview conducted by St. Luke Hospital and Living Center CEO Jeremy Armstrong, Hillsboro Boy Scouts Troop 129 Scoutmaster Todd Jost, Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6958 Quartermaster Bill Keith, Troop 102 Advancement Chairman Melissa Stuchlik, High Plains District Commissioner John Eastburn, and Eighth Judicial District Chief Judge Michael F. Powers.

For his Eagle Scout service project, Justin built a fire ring for evening campfires at Camp Quality, a summer camp for child cancer patients and survivors in Excelsior Springs, Mo., with help from fellow scout Zach Fruechting of Marion and Eagle Scout Jason Spengel of Overland Park.

Justin will have a Court of Honor ceremony to receive the award at 1:30 p.m. April 22 at the Marion Community Center in the city building.
