The highest award obtainable from the Boy Scouts of America organization will be presented to an 18- year-old Bowman youth.

Brady Roemmich will receive the Eagle Award in a Court of Honor at Bowman Lutheran Church.

Brady, the son of Michael and Sylvia Roemmich, receives the award after earning 36 merit badges and completing his service project of rebuilding a comfort station at the Lemmon Lion Club cabin on Lake Shadehill.

The University of North Dakota Freshman advanced through the ranks of Scouting as a member of Troops 45 of American Legion Post #115. Troop 45 has been making a difference in the Hettinger community since 1981.

Brady has held several offices including Chaplain Aid, Assistant Senior Patrol Leader, Senior Patrol Leader and Assistant Junior Scoutmaster. Brady is a Brotherhood member of the Order of the Arrow Pa-Hin chapter as Chapter Chief and Chapter Secretary.

The fact that a boy is an Eagle Scout has always carried with it a significance, not only in Scouting but also as he enters higher education, business or industry, and community service. The award is a performance-based achievement whose standards have been well-maintained over the years. Not every boy who joins a Boy Scout troop earns the Eagle Scout rank; only about 5 percent of all Boy Scouts do so. This represents more than 2 millions Boy Scouts who have earned the rank since 1912. Nevertheless, the goals of Scouting- citizenship training, character development, and personal fitness- remains important for all Scouts, whether or not they attain the Eagle Scout rank.

The Roughrider District is a geographic area of the Northern Lights Council, Boy Scouts of America. The Council founded in 1974, young men and women, throughout the entire state of North Dakota, 18 counties in Northwest Minnesota, two counties in South Dakota and two counties in Northwest Montana.

The mission of the Boy Scouts is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetime by installing in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law. The Northern Lights Council, Boy Scouts of America salutes Brady Roemmich for his achievement! For more information on Scouting visit www.nlcbsa.org or call 1.877.293.5011 (toll free).
