I would like to start off by saying some thank yous to those who made this day possible. To my parents for the much needed love and support To my family and friends and to the people who helped with my eagle project And thank you all for attending my court of honor Over the past 13 years, scouting has taught me a lot of things that will stay with me the rest of my life. It has taught me, don’t use gasoline to start a fire. I’ve learned that being an eagle Scout isn’t just a title, but a way on how to live your life. Since 2008, when I joined Boy Scouts, I’ve made so many friends and memories that I will never forget.

I agree with you 100 percent about children getting vaccinated. I 'm the mother of a 4 year old little girl who has always been vaccinated from day one of birth and thank goodness has never had any bad side effects from her vaccinations and I even get her a flu shot every flu season. And I like knowing that if she did have any complications I would want to know that if nothing else that my daughters medical bills would be taken care of. And i always found the information about the vaccinations and all the pros and cons are very helpful and easy to read. I think that the national childhood vaccine injury act is a good thing but I also think that getting your children vaccinated is good as well.

TNSCTP Scholarship Letter Athlete: Madelynn Weas Madelynn has been voted President of Str8 Shooters Clay Team by her teammates for the last 2 years. She fills the role perfectly with her drive for knowledge, she has been in a leadership roll for years as a 4H Honors/Allstar member. I think that this has helped her perfect her pursuit through coaching or mentoring shotgun sports with SCTP. I can always rely on her to work with me on our new and upcoming youth, her form and stance will always be textbook, this seems to help the youth understand what goal we are working towards. She could and will pursue the roll of coaching to the next level in the future.
For my community service project, I held a yard sale on October 17th, 2015 from 6:30 a.m. to one. I had received supplies from my family members and from my church members to sell. I made flyers and posted them in the community facilities, had the radio make an announcement, had the school announce the yard sale for two weeks, and had it announced on social media. This project was a success because with the yard sale and donations, I raised over 100 dollars to donate to The Wounded Warrior Project. I chose The Wounded Warrior Project because of the personal ties I have to the United States Military.
In 2007, I, along with a few of my peers, founded the Little Lemon Drop Jr. Guild as a way to give back to our community.

Throughout my middle school and high school years, I have been very involved with this group. When I had the opportunity to choose a service placement for this year, I immediately knew I would be doing my service through the Little Lemon Drop Jr. Guild because of my previous involvement with the guild and my passion for the cause the guild supports. I believe that the cause the Little Lemon Drop Jr. Guild supports is very important, as although I have never had to undergo a
