A group of local Boy Scouts officially became Eagle Scouts.

Nine boys of Troop Seven can now be considered Eagle Scouts after their Eagle Scout Recognition Ceremony. Joe Price is the Troop Seven Scout Master. He says this group of boys should be very proud of themselves.

"They've pretty much stayed together if you look at their rank, they pretty much have earned it all at the same time. They are all just the best of friends and they continue to enjoy scouting and working on it together. A lot of boys by this age would have dropped out of scouting," exclaimed Joe Price.

Jonathon Huntley is a new Eagle Scout. He says it is a special accomplishment for him.

"It's special because I've been working on it since I was three years old, been working up to this day, proud to be here with all my friends. We all made it to Eagle, everybody I grew up with," expresses Huntley.

The recognition ceremony was held at St. Patrick's Catholic Church. Troop Seven is from the Choctaw Area Council.
