Winston Lagergren, a 16-year-old Glen Rose High School student, has earned the Boy Scouts of America’s highest advancement award, the Eagle Scout in November 2018.
Lagergren was recognized in a Court of Honor Ceremony on March 25.
A member of BSA Troop 148 in Granbury, Lagergren is one of only approximately 2 percent of all Boy Scouts who attain the Eagle rank, according to Scoutmaster John Hughes.
Each candidate must earn 21 merit badges and successfully complete a community, church, or synagogue-related service project to earn his Eagle.
Lagergren chose to build a beach volleyball court for Grace
Community Church in Glen Rose. He has also earned the bronze, silver and gold palms. These are for merit badges earned beyond the Eagle rank. He is an Arrowman in the BSA Order of the Arrow Lodge, Netopalis Sipo Schipinachk, the Brazos Valley Mighty Eagle Chapter as a Brotherhood member.
“I wanted to give something back to the church and youth group” Lagergren said. “I felt the volleyball court would be a fun way to fellowship.”
Lagergren is a member of Grace Community Church and is active in marching band, debate, cross country and tennis at GRHS. He is also active in 4H, Civil Air Patrol (Cadet) and he is a volunteer Hunt Master for Texas Youth Hunting Program.
Lagergren is a member of BSA Venture Crew 360 in Acton. The Crew will be traveling this summer to Cimarron, New Mexico, the location for the Philmont Scout Ranch for a 12-day back country Trek.
Winston is the son of Peter Lagergren of Sequim, WA and Lori Lagergren of Glen Rose.
