Joshua Eagle earns Eagle award

Joshua Eagle of Salisbury received his Eagle Scout award Jan. 22, 2012, at Union Lutheran Church. He is the son of Duane and Sabrina Eagle of Salisbury; grandson of Glenn and Sue Eagle of Salisbury and Fred “Mose” and Marilene Stirewalt of Concord; and great-grandson of Margaret Hardin of Kannapolis.
Joshua was one of the youths to join Troop 334 when it recharted six years ago and is the first member of Union Lutheran to earn the Eagle award for Troop 334 in 25 years.
A student at North Rowan High School, he is involved in band, JROTC as Battalion Commander and is a member of the National Honor Society. He is a volunteer firefighter for the East Spencer and Union fire departments and is employed part-time with Duane Eagle  Electrical Service.
Joshua’s Eagle project consisted of building an altar and installing benches at Union Lutheran’s pond area. The accomplishment of the project was with thanks to the Boy Scouts of Troop 334, friends, family, church members, local businesses and Pastor T.C. Plexico. Special thanks to Mike Lemmon Construction for the brick and the beautiful  masonry work and Tommy Jones with Bath Tech for donating the granite top and his time.
This project truly shows how a community can accomplish something wonderful by working together for the glory of God. Congratulations, Joshua, on a job well done.
