Eagle Scout honored with House resolution

Nathan Barthel was presented a Missouri House resolution in honor of his earning the rank of Eagle Scout during his recent Court of Honor.

“Nathan is a fine student and a dedicated Scout and it was my honor to be able to present him with this small token of appreciation from the Missouri House of Representatives,” Rep. Bivins of Oakville, who presented the resolution, stated in a news release.

“He has spent 12 years of his young life dedicated to Scouting and has demonstrated his capability and willingness to exert his leadership on many occasions.”

Barthel is a member of Boy Scout Troop 671. He successfully met the requirements of Eagle Scout by completing his Eagle project, which involved building an outdoor classroom at Blades Elementary School.

During his 12 years as a Scout, he mastered several challenging and diverse skills and earned 24 merit badges, the Ad Altar Dei Award, two Mile Swim Awards, the World Conservation Award and membership in the Order of the Arrow.

He is the son of David and Elaine Barthel of St. Louis.

“I want to congratulate Nathan on his success in attaining Eagle Scout,” Bivins stated. “And I want to wish him the best of luck in all his future endeavors.”
