The culmination of a young life spent in the scouts is an Eagle Scout Project. The young man or woman must put together a written plan, get permissions from the benefitting organization, get permissions from their Scout Leader and then do the research necessary to start and complete the project. Here in Tucker, there is a long history of Eagle Scouts whose projects have contributed to the betterment of the community.
Some of the most visible Eagle Scout projects are in Tucker’s parks. For years, hikers at Henderson Park could reference a trail map researched and constructed by Eagle Scout Tully Herr. While changes and upgrades to the trails have rendered the 2006 map obsolete, it still stands in the park as an example of hard work. Additionally, in 2019, Eagle Scout Wyle Woodman completed a project building bat houses in Tucker’s parks. He chose the project after consulting with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), deciding it would be an effective way to curtail Zika and other mosquito-borne diseases.
