Campion senior Caleb Anthony recently attained the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest rank awarded in the Boy Scouts of America program, and one earned by only 2% of Scouts since its inception in 1912. Earning the Eagle Scout award took Caleb 6 years and included earning over 30 merit badges, leading the 65 Scouts in Greeley’s Troop 247 as their Senior Patrol Leader (SPL) for one year, and designing and implementing an Eagle Scout Service Project. In addition, a Board of Review interviewed Caleb and checked his character references, leadership history, and other parts of his scouting career. “It feels good to join such a small, dedicated group of teenagers that really want to make a difference,” he says.
Caleb’s service project involved conservation work—building and installing 8 bat houses at Campion. He knows this area is ideal habitat for bats and hopes they will lower the insect population here on campus. Look for them this summer when they return from their winter home!
