Fisher to receive Eagle Scout award today

Hunter Alexander Fisher, 17, son of John and Joy Fisher, will receive his Eagle Scout Award and his God and Life Award today at Wittenberg Lutheran Church in Granite Quarry. Frank Merrell, Scoutmaster of Troop 379 will award his Eagle. Pastor Tom Cogan will give the God and Life award.
Fisher has served as Senior Patrol Leader, was named Boy Scout of the Year in 2003 and received the Scouting Achievement Award in 2007. He has held various positions in his troop and earned 27 merit badges.

Fisher’s Eagle Scout project connected Granite Lake Park to Centennial Park with a trail that has been named “The Chuck Barringer Trail” in memory of his former Scoutmaster. The gravel trail enables the citizens of Granite Quarry to walk both parks without interruption.
A lifelong member of Wittenberg Lutheran Church, Fisher is an acolyte, crucifer and usher. He also participates in the Wittenberg Young Disciples Youth Organization and has volunteered at Rowan Helping Ministries. Fisher attended the Lutheran Men in Mission gatherings in 2002 and in 2005.
