Boy Scout Troop 377 held an Eagle Scout Court of Honor at Rocky Mount United Methodist Church in Mooresville Dec. 21 to recognize two new Eagle Scouts.
Bobby Missert and Joe Nash were honored during the ceremony and received their Eagle awards from Scoutmaster Mike Bernhardt who also charged the Scouts during the event. Guest speaker at the ceremony was Michael Chenard.
To become an Eagle Scout, each had to perform an extensive service project that the scout plans, organizes, leads and manages, and the project must benefit a segment of the community.
Missert’s project was the enhancing of the outdoor worship area of St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church where he attends. This project included the sanding and painting of several benches, building a brick patio for three picnic tables and creating an outdoor classroom with six benches.
In the Scout ceremony program, Missert said that “it was an honor to plan and build this project that combined my love of the outdoors with my love for my church,”
Nash’s project was the building of a stone outdoor fire pit surrounded by a brick patio and four benches for the Greater Lake Norman Young Life Meeting Barn. Young Life is a nondenominational Christian ministry that aims to grow relationships with God in high school.
Nash said in the program that “since completion of the project, I have been back to The Barn for multiple bonfires and worship ceremonies. It was my privilege to provide this space through my Eagle Scout project. I am thankful to be part of such an amazing organization such as Boy Scouts.”
Missert is the son of Ginger and Jon Missert of Mooresville and the grandson of Bobby and Peggy Shelton of Mocksville.
Nash is the son of Lisa and Kevin Nash of Mooresville and the grandson of Judy and Doug Tarlton and Dean and Frank Nash, all of Mooresville.
