Email News Alerts

Don’t call them Boy Scouts anymore. In a Court of Honor ceremony on March 23, Alex Wegscheid and Luke Potts were officially awarded the rank of Eagle Scout.


Both of the Perham area boys earned the rank after completing service projects that directly benefited military veterans.

Potts will be leaving for U.S. Army basic training at Fort Benning in Georgia this May, followed by Infantry AIT, and then Airborne and Ranger schools.
