Mary Alice Reporting – Before the end of the year, the Tuscarawas County Commissioner made a final Eagle Scout recognition.

To receive that highest rank in the boy scouts is an incredible achievement that only 4% have earned since its inception in 1911.

Chase Coulson, an Indian Valley sophomore, explained that his project was at Camp Zimmerman, in Gnadenhutten.

“So my project was refurbishing picnic tables for Camp Zimmerman. Cleaning them up, power washing them, and then I put slate down, put three tables under there, put one table up by the ball field, and I made two benches for the fire pit and I made the fire pit and painted it.”

Working his way to the highest badge, Coulson earned 36 merit badges showing his work ethic and dedication.

The Commissioners also commended his parents for their behind-the-scenes contributions.

Kerry Metzger, an eagle scout himself, encouraged Coulson to use that distinction on college and job applications his entire life.
