Noah Harrison Powell is receiving his Eagle Scout Award today, July 23, 2017, at First United Methodist Church of Salisbury.  David B. Wilson, Scoutmaster of Troop 442, will present the award.

Noah was a Cub Scout in Pack 442, where he earned the God and Me, God and Family and Arrow of Light awards.

For his Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project, Noah planned and coordinated the work of youth and adult volunteers to develop the Walker’s Creek Trailhead on the Uwharrie Trail by building a split rail fence, adding storm water runouts and installing a fire ring for campers.
