Matthew Head, 18, of Delta has earned his Eagle rank as a member of Boy Scout Troop 486. Head joined the troop in 2007 and earned the rank of Eagle Dec. 18 as one of the final 2012 Eagles.
This was an outstanding accomplishment since 2012 was the 100th anniversary of the Eagle rank in Boy Scouting; just 2 percent of all Boy Scouts earn this rank.
Head's Eagle project involved replacing all 250 flag poles for the flags which are posted on Main Street, Highway 50, and Highway 92 in Delta during the holidays from Mother's Day in May to Veterans Day in November. His award ceremony, sponsored by his parents, Wayne and Jamie Head, was held March 23.
Head is a 2013 Delta High School graduate and has made a commitment to the United States Marine Corps beginning in June.blog comments powered by Disqus
