Hunter Jack Heidesch has successfully completed all of the requirements set forth by the Boy Scouts of America to obtain the rank of Eagle Scout as was reported earlier in this paper, and his efforts have been recognized and approved by the National Council.

"The Thundercloud District of BSA has a reputation for being very thorough in all their verifications so when Hunter was awarded his Eagle Board of Review by the District Council we were pretty sure that as long as he passed his Board he was a shoe-in for the National designation.' Stated Judy Heidesch, Assistant Scoutmaster for Greater Marcus Area Troop 113.

"He sat with six lifetime scouts in a room for an hour answering their questions to see if he was truly worthy of the title of Eagle Scout and we were told before we left the building that he had passed. It was pretty nerve wracking as a parent, just sitting back unable to do anything but that actually makes it all the more impressive.

Being able to put that on a resume and job application will open doors to someone that would never open otherwise. If the scout chooses the military next he will start out at a better pay grade and higher rank than others coming in, If he is in contention with other candidates for a job and they don't have this rank, he will definitely have the nod of the hiring executive.

Most businesses understand the leadership skills learned in the process of becoming and Eagle and these skills are so well learned that they translate to any field and last for the rest of the scout's life."

Keep your eyes open for the next Eagle from the Greater Marcus Area Troop 113 because there are more in the works claims Judy Heidesch. The troop thanks the community for their support by helping the future of their nation and the world one young man at a time.
