Making Eagle Scout is a rare achievement: depending on who you ask, only 5-7 percent of scouts make it to that level. Those achievers include Gerald Ford, Neil Armstrong, and Steven Spielberg.
Boy Scout Troop 1 at St. Mark's Episcopal Church has an even rarer achievement: honoring six Eagle Scouts at once, which they did during Court of Honor ceremonies Saturday, Dec. 21. The scouts are: Jesse Adamczyk, John Boden, Justin Budge, Kyle LaBrecque, Alan Sun, and Joe Tang.
Speakers at the ceremony included: Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich, Peter Theisinger (JPL project manager for the Mars Curiosity Rover), and US Forest Service Battalion Chief Oscar Vargas, who had just returned from fighting the Big Sur fire.
