Two to become Eagle Scouts on March 2

Staff report

William Avery Edwards of Paducah and Chase Jeffrey Snyder of Greenbrier, Tenn., will be recognized in an Eagle Court of Honor ceremony for Boy Scout Troop 1 of the Lincoln Heritage Council beginning at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 2, at Grace Episcopal Church in Paducah. All friends and relatives are invited.

Edwards is the son of Kirk and Laura Edwards of Paducah. He is the grandson of Gene and Ann Edwards, and Ron and Jeane Watts, all of Paducah.

He started his Scouting career in the first grade as a Tiger Cub with Pack 19. As a Webelo he earned the super achiever award and was awarded the Arrow of Light. He attended summer and winter camps at Roy C. Manchester at Kentucky Lake. He earned his Pathfinder Orienteering at Higgins-Henry Wildlife Management Area and plans to attend High Adventure Camp at Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico.

For his Eagle service project, Edwards constructed a fire pit for Lone Oak United Methodist Church, where he is a member. The project cost $1,226.36 along with donated material and supplies, and included four volunteers and 28 hours of work. Since completion, the fire pit has been used by Boy Scout Troop 200 for flag retirement ceremonies and the members and youth of Lone Oak United Methodist Church for cookouts.

Snyder is the son of Angie Jeffrey of Paducah, and Sean and Wendy Snyder of Greenbrier, Tenn. He is the grandson of Jan and Janet Haynes, Jeffrey and Sherry Ross, and Terry Mike and Debbie Jeffrey, all of Paducah.

Snyder began his Scouting career in the second grade. He has been camping multiple times at Roy C. Manchester's summer camp and Klondike Camps. Twice he participated in Pathfinder Orienteering activities, as well as a High Adventure Camp at Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico, where he plans to return this summer. He has held many leadership positions in the troop and helped younger Scouts to become successful in their Scouting careers as well.

For his Eagle service project, Snyder renovated the gym at Broadway United Methodist Church in Paducah, where he had been a longtime member until moving to Tennessee. The project included 13 volunteers and more than 81 hours of work.
