Teen attains Eagle Scout rank
Boy Scout Troop 209 of Towamensing Township is proud to announce that Bryce Michael Beahm attained the rank of Eagle Scout on Dec. 29, 2016.
He is the son of Michael and Marge Beahm, and brother of Maddison and Connor. He celebrated with his family, friends and fellow Scouts at an Eagle Scout Court of Honor on April 30, 2017, at the Palmerton Rod & Gun Club, the Troop’s charter organization.
Bryce began his scouting career as a Tiger Cub Scout with Pack 439 in Allentown. After moving to Palmerton, he joined Pack 209 as a Webelos II in 2009.
Bryce earned his Arrow of Light, Cub Scouting’s highest honor, before crossing over to Troop 209 with the rest of his Pack 209 Webelos scouts in 2010.
Bryce is a member of the Order of the Arrow, the National Honor Society of Scouting. He has moved through the ranks of scouting while participating in many outings, adventures, hikes and camps.
Bryce learned many skills at the Trexler Scout Reservation in Jonas, along with BSA Camp Rodney in North East, Maryland, on the Chesapeake Bay.
He also joined the Troop to attend the BSA High Adventure Seabase Camp in 2014, a sailing and snorkeling trip of a lifetime.
He and several other Scouts and leaders also took a trip to the Adirondacks of New York for hiking and canoeing in the mountains and lakes.
For Bryce’s Eagle project, he led a group of Scouts, family and friends to reconstruct the rifle and shooting benches and tables at a public shooting range on state game lands.
During Bryce’s Court of Honor, he thanked his parents, grandparents and Scout leaders for helping him along the way. He gave mentor pins to three of his Scout leaders: Scoutmaster Rick Anderson, assistant Scoutmaster Rocky Borger and assistant Scoutmaster Ricky Moyer.
In addition to Boy Scouts, Bryce participates in soccer, track, National Honor Society, student council, environmental club, FBLA and Leo Club at the Palmerton Area High School.
