Cameron Robert Lewis was the recipient of the Boy Scouts of America's highest achievement as he was recognized at an Eagle Scout Court of Honor on March 24.
The ceremony was held at Knoxville Yoked Church with District Judge Brian Edgcomb, also an Eagle Scout, presiding as master of ceremonies.
Troop 22 presented the flags and Elaine Kirk offered the invocation. The Knoxville Yoked Church holds the charter for Troop 22.
Cameron Robert Lewis became an Eagle Scout on March 24.
Lewis is the son of Lynne and Bob Lewis, Elkland, and the grandson of Larry and Sandra Steadman, Knoxville; Christine Cook and Maxine Lewis, Westfield; and the late Duane Lewis.
Speaking on behalf of Lewis were his former teacher Amy Millard and former principal Chris Adams, and Eagle Scout Matthew Lewis, his brother. The presentation was led by Eagle Scout Roy Weidman, Scoutmaster.
After receiving his Eagle badge, Lewis spoke about his years of Scouting and gave thanks to those who helped make it possible for him to reach his goal. Lewis joined the Scouts as a Tiger Cub when he was 6 years old. He presented "Eagle" pins to his parents and three mentor pins to Millard, Weidman and his brother Matthew.
For his Eagle project, Lewis built and placed six wooden flower boxes that line Main Street in Knoxville. Lewis spent 231 hours to complete the project. Chrysanthemums were planted in the boxes last fall and Lewis will plant additional flowers in the spring before giving the boxes to the businesses. As a finishing touch, plaques made by Bill Roosa will be placed on the boxes.
