Samuel Slayton of St. Vivian Church, Boy Scout Troop 682, in Cincinnati has attained the rank of Eagle Scout. He joins the ranks of 35 other Eagle Scouts from Troop 682 in its 53-year history at St. Vivian. Fewer than three percent of all boys who enter Scouting achieve the rank of Eagle Scout.
To become an Eagle, a candidate must demonstrate leadership skills in his Troop and in a community service project. For his project, Slayton chose to build an 130 foot fence addition to Farbach-Warner Nature Reserve in Colerain Township, Ohio.
