TABERG — Bryce Benjamin Wing has become Boy Scout Troop 24’s newest Eagle Scout.
Wing received his Eagle Scout award at an Eagle Court of Honor held in the Taberg Volunteer Fire Department Hall. He began his scouting career by joining Pack 24 in Taberg in September of 2004. He cumulated his Cub Scout years by receiving the Arrow of Light award on March 14, 2007. Wing then crossed over and joined Troop 24 on March 26, 2007. Along the way, Wing earned a total of 33 merit badges. He has served as Troop 24 historian for several years. Throughout his Scouting career, Wing has received numerous awards and recognitions.
Camping by far is one of his favorite parts of Scouting, he said. Wing has attended summer camp at Camp Russell and Cedarlands Scout Reservation. He has attended the International Brotherhood Jamboree held here in the U.S. and Canada.
Wing is a member of the Order of the Arrow and was a contingent member of Troop 325 of the Revolutionary Trails Council to the 2010 National Jamboree held in Fort A.P. Hill, Va.
His Eagle Project was completed for the Amboy 4-H Environmental Education Center in Oswego County. This project was designed to allow handicapped individuals access to the observation area at the pond. Wing’s project allowed him to provide leadership to others in clearing the path from the handicap accessible parking lot to the observation dock, replacing 30 feet of bridgework over swampy terrain, and adding supports to the existing platform decking.
He plans to continue in Scouting the help motivate other scouts to attain the rank of Eagle.
