Bangor Scout achieves Eagle rank

EDDINGTON, Maine — Logan Clifton Morrison, 17, of Bangor received the rank of Eagle Scout during a ceremony June 6 at Camp Roosevelt.

For his Eagle service project, Morrison built a 16-by-20-foot pavilion at Bangor High School for use in the Outdoor Education Program. Under the direction of Jeff Fahey, head of the high school’s physical education department, Morrison also built two picnic tables, an outdoor cooking area and a camp kitchen, all to be used by students in the program.

Many businesses in the Bangor area donated materials, and other Scouts, friends and family members helped donate in excess of 140 work hours to complete the project.

As part of the Eagle ceremony on June 6, the son of Angus and Kimberly Morrison of Bangor presented mentor pins to his father, who is a Scoutmaster, and to Col. Jackson Kurtzman, a former teacher in the ROTC program at Bangor High School. Logan Morrison will be a senior at the high school next year and command sergeant major in the ROTC program.

Morrison was a first-grader when he started as a Cub Scout in 1998 with Pack 10 of Bangor, contributing to the community by participating in food drives and public park cleanups. He advanced to leadership roles in Troop 10 as a Boy Scout, becoming senior patrol leader and then junior assistant scoutmaster.

He also participated in the organization’s National Youth Leadership Training Program and Order of the Arrow service arm, and worked on the staff at Camp Roosevelt in Eddington.

This summer Morrison will be the senior patrol leader for the youth leadership training program at Camp Roosevelt and will again be employed at the facility as the area director of Scout craft.

After high school, Morrison plans to study kinesiology at the University of Maine and to pursue a career in fitness.
