Ceremony honors local Eagle Scouts


MADISON (WKOW) -- Seven Madison teens recently earned the Eagle Scout honor.

Boy Scout Troop 5 held a ceremony Sunday to recognize the boys' achievements.

This is the first year the troop promoted more than four boys to Eagle Scout.

"Not everybody can get this far in scouting," said Logan Gehin, who became an Eagle Scout. "It takes a lot of hard work and effort, and a lot of paperwork and a lot of help from other people to get this far, so it's a really big accomplishment."

Each scout completed a service project and earned 21 merit badges.

Less than four percent of Boy Scouts become Eagle Scouts.
