Two Mason teens are among 14 in Boy Scout Troop 674 to earn the rank of Eagle Scout in the 2012-2013 school year.
Amogg Damodhar, a student at Mason High School, built and installed four rain barrells and connected them to soaker hoses to irrigate lawns and student gardens at Ohio Valley Voices School in Miami Township.
Kyle Steidle, who attends Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy, built and installed the Promise Pathway memorial garden honoring school parents who died while their children attended CHCA.
The Troop, which is chartered to Church of the Saviour in Montgomery, is open to boys ages 11-17 and has approximately 65 registered Scouts from several northeast suburbs.
To become an Eagle Scout, a candidate must first earn at least 21 merit badges and complete a community service and leadership project before his 18th birthday. Only about five percent of Boy Scouts earned the Eagle Scout award, according to the Boy Scouts of America.
Troop 674 meets weekly at the Church of the Saviour, 8005 Pfeiffer Road, Montgomery. For more information call the church at 513-791-3142.
