Sean Carruthers, 15, a member of Boy Scout Troop No. 251 in Kent, recently attained the rank of Eagle Scout.
His completion of this rank was celebrated during a Court of Honor held at Trinity Lutheran Church in Kent.
A freshman at Theodore Roosevelt High School in Kent, Sean has been active in Scouting since 2005 when he became a member of Cub Scout Pack No. 3256 at Holden Elementary School in Kent where he earned many patches, belt loops, and pins, as well as the Arrow of Light -- the highest Cub Scout Award.
He became a Boy Scout in 2008 where he advanced through the ranks and served in leadership roles including Quartermaster, Historian, Den Chief and Senior Patrol Leader.
He has earned many merit badges as a Boy Scout, is a Brotherhood member of the Order of the Arrow, and recently earned his Den Chief Award. His Eagle Scout project was building a handicap ramp for the Kent Garden Club at the Ode to Joy Building.
The project was completed in August 2012. Several Scout and family members assisted with the project. The financing for the project was provided by Condor Trucking in Akron and the Kent Garden Club.
Sean has worked as a staff member for the Cub Scout Day Camp in Ravenna and is Den Chief for Cub Pack No. 3254. He plans to stay active in Scouting and has applied for a summer camp staff position at Camp Manatoc.
He presented his Eagle Scout mentor pin to Mitch Darmon for his early guidance as a Boy Scout.
In addition to Scouting, Sean is a member of the Expedition Academy at Roosevelt High School and a black belt in Tae Kwon Do with Mountain Martial Arts.
He has been on the honor roll throughout his school years. His future plans include the serving in the U.S. Air Force and college.
