Boy Scout Troop Seven of Pinehurst held a Court of Honor at the Community Presbyterian Church on Everett Road (near Pinehurst Elementary School) on Tuesday, June 4. The troop holds this ceremony every six months to award Scouts for what they have accomplished since the previous Court of Honor. Attending the event were Matthew Butler, Jack Castleberry, Samual Clark, Kaz Dunstan, Jackson Girard, Jordan Greenblatt, Sam Lamblin, Thomas Mann, Nicholas Petero, McGowan Sams, Thomas Taylor, Ben Weinshel, Samual Weinshel, Stephen White, Kyle Yarter and Ryan Yarter.

At the ceremony, Scouts earn a merit badge when they pick one of the BSA merit badge topics. Scouts read and learn about it, master the content, then earn the badge to show their accomplishment. When it says “Scout,” “First Class” or “Life,” it means that that Scout got a rank advancement and can now work on the next higher rank.

The following Scouts received Merit Badges: Matthew Butler, Camping; Jack Castleberry, Citizenship in the Nation and Personal Fitness; Jackson Girard,Emergency Preparedness; Jordan Greenblatt, Personal Fitness; Sam Lamblin, Camping, Family Life, Sustainability, Citizenship in the Community, and Communications; Nicholas Petero, Automotive Maintenance and Moviemaking; and McGowan Sams, Personal Finance and Moviemaking. The following Scouts earned a rank advancement: Kaz Dunstan, Scout; Jackson Girard, Life; Jordan Greenblatt, Life; Thomas Taylor, Scout; Stephen White, Scout; Kyle Yarter, First Class.
