The highest award from the Boy Scouts of America — the rank of Eagle Scout – was recently awarded to FCS junior Silas Mayes. Silas has been a member of Troop 244 at Peace Presbyterian Church since 3rd grade, first as a Cub Scout and then as Boy Scout since 2011. For his Eagle Scout project, Silas completed a landscape renovation project at Peace Presbyterian Church, first removing overgrown trees and shrubs, then installing new landscape edging, trees, shrubs and mulch. He is the 51st Eagle Scout at his troop. He plans to continue with Troop 244, participating in Venture Crew and Sea Scouts.
