Last Tuesday, Tyler F. McGeehan, 17, joined an elite group when he officially accepted Scouting's highest rank. He is the 41st member of Troop 555, Penn Forest Township, to become an Eagle Scout.
An Eagle Scout Court of Honor was held in the Penn Forest Fire Hall, which is home to Troop 555, as well as Penn Forest Volunteer Fire Company No. 1. McGeehan's brother, Jake, 15, who is also a Boy Scout, served as master of ceremonies.
Speakers included state Rep. Doyle Heffley, who is also an Eagle Scout. He advised McGeehan to always live by the Scout Law.
