Eagle Scout honor
Samuel Mullins, 18, a recent Inglemoor High graduate with a diploma from the international baccalaureate program, recently attained the rank of Eagle Scout. It’s the highest rank to be earned through the Boy Scouts of America program.
Mullins celebrated with an Eagle Scout Court of Honor at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in Lynnwood June 6. He is a member of Troop 61, which is part of the Mount Baker Council and chartered to Gloria Dei Lutheran Church.
He joined Cub Scouts in the fall of 1996 and bridged into Boy Scouts in 2001. He completed 26 merit badges requiring study and skill mastery in many different areas and held a number of leadership positions within the troop.
For his Eagle Scout community service project, Mullins designed and managed a troop project that built 12 large acoustical treatment panels for Gloria Dei Lutheran Church’s Fellowship Hall.
