Patricio Pino is our new Eagle Scout

May 3 Patricio Pino was named an Eagle Scout in his final board of review with officials from the Sons of Liberty District.

Patricio, a senior at Watertown High School, has been a valued member of Troop 30 in a great time of transition. He served as Senior Patrol leader during both a pandemic and at a time when Troop 30 integrated female scouts into its troop.

To become an Eagle, Patricio previously served as leader of the Baconators Patrol, which came in first place in 2020’s Northern Lights District Klondike Derby, a winter skills competition where scouts need to figure out problems and pit their skills against scouts in the region.

But being a leader is not enough to make you an Eagle. Scouts choose a service project that benefits their community and lead other scouts in making that idea a reality. Patricio, following COVID-safety rules, worked with Troop 30 and Pack 30 to collect coats for homeless veterans.

While scouting in itself is a goal, fewer than 10 percent of scouts become an Eagle. Troop 30 congratulates Patricio on this major achievement.
