Congratulations to Zack T, the Crew's tenth Eagle. In a wonderful outdoor ceremony held at the Fredericksen Wilderness Park on a midsummer night in Big Valley, east of Poulsbo, Zack was given his Eagle Charge as a "marked man" and completed his long trail to the highest rank in Scouting. In a particularly moving part of the campfire ceremony, representatives of each rank in the Boy Scout program and an officer in Venturing attested to Zack's completion of all the requirements. As Zack stated at the end of the evening, making Eagle wasn't about knots, hiking, or awards. It was about building character, becoming a better citizen, and being a fit member of society. Yep, he "got" it.
The son of a Coast Guardsman, Zack started as a Cub Scout in Alaska, crossed over to a Boy Scout Troop in Virginia, joined Poulsbo Troop 1571 when the family moved to Poulsbo, and joined the Crew once he was eligible. He remains active in both units. Other Crew 42 members in the Court were Jeff Z, Jake K, Brody H, and Eric O.
