Harrison Jacob Parrott, 14, will receive his Eagle Scout Award Sunday, May 22, 2016 at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Salisbury. Harrison began his scouting career as a Tiger Cub in Pack 443 in the fall of 2007. As a Cub Scout, Harrison earned the God and Me, God and Family, and the Cub Scouts’ highest award, the Arrow of Light. He also earned the Super Achiever Award by earning every Cub Scout Activity Pin. Harrison was the recipient of the Pack 443 Spirit Award in 2012.
As a Boy Scout, Harrison has earned 78 Merit Badges, the Messenger of Peace Award, the Totin’ Chip, the Firem’n Chit, the Cyber Chip, the National Outdoor Awards Program for Camping and Conservation, and the World Conservation Award. He has also completed the God and Church and God and Life awards and coupled with those he earned as a Cub Scout, he completed the esteemed God and Country Award. Harrison was the recipient of the Troop 443 Spirit Award in 2013, 2014, and 2015. In 2013 he was elected to the Order of the Arrow and became an Ordeal Member. He became a Brotherhood Member in 2014.
Harrison has served in several leadership roles in his troop including Patrol Leader, Chaplain Aide, Senior Patrol Leader, and currently serves as a Junior Assistant Scoutmaster. He regularly attends Summer Camp and has attended both Camp John J.

For his Eagle Scout service project, Harrison planned and constructed an Outdoor Music Station and Weighted/Balance Scale for the Salisbury Academy Kindergarten/Junior Kindergarten. In addition to constructing and installing these items, he made landscape improvements at the school with some plantings, weeding beds around the school property, as well as trimming crepe myrtles on the property.  The project involved 214 service hours and involved a total of 19 different volunteers.
