To attain the rank of Eagle Scout, Jason Dixon, 17, planned, developed and showed leadership in a service project that installed an outdoor message board at the SLO Senior Center.

The San Luis Obispo teen wrote his proposal and received approval from the Senior Center, his Boy Scout Troop 322 scoutmaster and unit committee, and the council.

Dixon displayed his planning and organizational skills by producing detailed drawings and an itemized list of materials/costs. He enlisted other members of his troop to help install the board.

Eagle Scout is the highest rank attainable in the Boy Scouts. In addition to the service project, it requires earning 21 merit badges and being active in the troop.
