Six Downers Grove Boy Scouts earn Eagle Scout rank
Six members of Boy Scout Troop 57, The Dragon Patrol, will celebrate achieving the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout together at their Court of Honor at 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 8, at the Downers Grove American Legion Post 80, 4000 Saratoga Ave.
The boys started out on the adventure together, pledging their first year in the well-established program, to become Eagles, and help each other along the way.
They have completed the daunting journey and will be honored this Saturday.
The five teens are 2020 graduates of Downers Grove South: Joseph Hyzy, Peter Kowalski, Nathan Luzak, Carlos Mendez, and John Norris.
Raymond Stull graduated from Downers Grove North High School. Four of the boys ran cross-country and track for Downers Grove South.
The troop is chartered by St. Paul's United Church of Christ in Downers Grove. For information on Boy Scout Troop 57, visit sites.google.com/site/dgtroop57a/.
