Local Boy Scouts continue to advance

Scoutmaster Rollin Roberts said only six students of the 100 males graduating from Brookhaven High School this year have attained the rank of Eagle Scout. That’s six percent. Five of these are members of Troop 119, sponsored by First United Methodist Church, Brookhaven. Troop 119 is one of the oldest troops in the United States, having been chartered in 1910. Pictured here are four young men recognized as Eagle Scouts in early 2017. They are, from left: Ben Doty, Andrew Knot, Jack Lowery and Clayton Roberts.
