Scout earns Eagle honors

Staff Writer

Botkins High School junior Konnor Burmeister, 17, recently received his Eagle Scout award.

The ceremony was held in September at St. Paul Lutheran Church. For his project, Burmeister installed a 92-foot-long walkway from the church's parsonage to its back door. He said he got the idea to do so after hearing the church's previous pastor talk about the struggles of not having one.

He calls receiving the award a “great honor that took so long.” He began work on the walkway in June of 2014 and wrapped up in August of 2014.
