-A +A

Tayler Brown, 16, has attained the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest honor in Boy Scouting.

He is a member of Rocklin Boy Scout Troop 29. He has served in many leadership positions: assistant senior patrol leader, patrol leader and, most recently, junior assistant scoutmaster. To earn scouting’s highest honor, Brown earned 28 merit badges, spent 50 nights camping, hiked 89 miles and completed more than 375 hours of community service. He also earned special awards, including the mile swim and Polar Bear Swim.

His Eagle Scout service project consisted of creating a two-man ticket booth, cake walk floor with spinning wheel and a rolling cart for Breen Elementary. Leading 10 scouts and adults, the project took more than 300 hours to complete. He obtained donations from Home Depot in Roseville and Meeks Lumber & Hardware in Rocklin and Wittman Enterprises, LLC. Every year in October, Breen holds a carnival, so all of the items that were built for this project will be used for many years to come.

A junior at Rocklin High School, Brown is in his third year of participating on the water polo and swim team. He also swims for the Rocklin Wave swim team and this summer will be his third year.
