He has been a Boy Scout for over 3 years, and has also earned his religious knot/medal. Conner is also a member of the Order of the Arrow, the National Honor Society of Scouting. He has also earned the following awards:

World Conservation Award
National Outdoor Achievement Award
Attended both Council Oak Leaf Training and
National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT)
Messenger of Peace Award

and 6-Year Service Star

Conner is Troop 22’s very first Eagle Scout. He transferred from Troop 298 as a First Class Scout, and earned his last three ranks over the course of 28 months. While with Troop 22, he has served as as a Troop Guide, Troop Quartermaster, and most recently as the Senior Patrol Leader. He now serves as the Vice President of Venture Crew 178.

To date, Conner has recorded well over 81 nights of camping, over 75 hours of community service, (not including his Eagle Project,) hiked over 46 miles, cycled over 52 miles, and paddled over 5 miles.

For his Eagle Project, Conner distributed information packets to over 300 of his neighbors, detailing conservation facts, figures, and opportunities in order to save natural resources, water, electricity, and even his community money.

Congratulations from American Legion, Peter J Courcy Post 178!
