Scout earns Eagle award

Tyler Lee Robinson, 17, a senior at Montoursville Area High School, has earned the highest advancement award the Boy Scouts of America offers, the Eagle Scout Award.

Robinson was recognized during a Court of Honor Ceremony March 23 at Community Baptist Church. He received his Eagle Scout award Dec. 19, 2012.

The positions Robinson held in Troop 21 are senior patrol leader, assistant senior patrol leader, patrol leader and troop guide.

For his Eagle Scout project, Robinson had restored the “Welcome to Montoursville” sign by the airport. He scraped and painted the sign, built a flower box and also planted mums and bulbs.

The people that helped Robinson complete the work on the sign are the Boy Scouts from Troop 21, his mother, stepfather and grandfather. He would like to say thank you to everyone who helped that weekend.

Along with Robinson being an Eagle Scout, he also is a junior firefighter with Montoursville Fire Department Station 20 and has a second degree black belt in Taekwondo. Robinson’s aspirations are to serve in the Air Force as a security forces specialist.

He is the son of Bonnie Freezer of Montoursville and Harry Robinson of York. Robinson is the first Eagle Scout of the family.
