Tyler Morris, a member of Atglen-based Boy Scout Troop 20 and a senior at Octorara High School, achieved the rank of Eagle, the highest award in Boy Scouting.
Tyler is the son of Charyl Cazzille Morris & Timothy M. Morris Jr.
To obtain the Eagle Scout rank, a Scout must earn numerous merit badges that demonstrate various skills, spirit and leadership as well as lead a service project that benefits the community.
Morris earned a total of 24 merit badges with his favorites being water sports, rifle shooting, and personal fitness along with first aid being the most useful.
Tyler’s Eagle Project was to build a teacher work station with multiple shelving units for science supplies, books, and periodicals at the Octorara Intermediate School.
He attended multiple camping trips to Camp Rodney and Camp Horseshoe and was inducted into the Order of the Arrow, an Honor Society for Scouts.
Tyler and his father participated in a two week high adventure trip to Philmont Scout Ranch located in New Mexico which is made up of hundreds of miles of rocky and rugged terrain, amazing nature scenes and wildlife.
The Philmont trip is his favorite Scouting memory.
In addition to Scouting, Morris is a senior at Octorara High School and a member of the Technology Students Club and attends Olivet United Methodist Church in Coatesville.
After graduating from Octorara this Spring, Tyler plans to attend college for environmental geology.
