Two local high school students recently earned the top honor awarded by the Boy Scouts of America after completing a pair of projects to beautify their communities.
Nicolas Barrows, an 18-year-old senior at Alabaster’s Evangel Christian School, and Craig Cambron, a 15-year-old sophomore at Pelham High School, both were awarded their Eagle Scout badges during recent Court of Honor ceremonies.
Barrows and Cambron are members of the Pelham-based Boy Scout Troop 404, and the scouts represented the troop’s 25th and 26th Eagle Scouts, respectively.
For his Eagle Scout project, Barrows designed, built and installed photo cutouts for the petting farm at Oak Mountain State Park. He is the son of Dwight and Krista Barrows of Alabaster.
Cambron earned his Eagle Scout badge by restoring a 50-foot wooden stairway and conducting a beautification project at the First Baptist Church of Pelham. Cambron is the son of Gary and Suzie Cambron of Pelham.
