Congratulations to Our Scouts

Words: Kelly Simmons

When most of us join various scouting groups, we can barely imagine reaching the highest level. To most of us, it seems light years away. For many, scouts used to be one of the first things dropped due to various commitments we deemed “more important”. Those who are dedicated and make the ultimate commitment are rewarded.

Centennial would like to congratulate four seniors and one junior, who were awarded the highest achievements in scouting.

Dean Fochios and Jesse Kinstler both received the Eagle Scout Award, the top award for Boy Scouts. Ashi Agrawal and Alicia Townsend received the Gold award, the top award for Girl Scouts, and Tessa Hawkins received the Gold and Silver Award for Venturing Scouts.
