Daniel Allen eagle scout

Franklin Christian Academy Senior Daniel Allen earned his Eagle Scout, the highest advancement rank in Scouting, earlier this year.

To earn the Eagle Scout rank, a Boy Scout must fulfill requirements in the areas of leadership, service, and outdoor skills. Although many options are available to demonstrate proficiency in these areas, a number of specific skills are required to advance through the ranks—Tenderfoot, Second Class, First Class, Star, Life, and Eagle. To advance, a Boy Scout must meet specific requirements ranging from tenure in a unit and leadership positions to the earning of merit badges.

Daniel has been in Boy Scouts for 10 years and for his Eagle Scout project he worked on a flag pole for Franklin Christian Academy. He completed his project last summer and officially received his Eagle Scout honor in February 2019.
