Arkansas Eagle Scout of the Year: Matthew Mabry!
Blytheville First United Methodist Church is proud to announce that Matthew Mabry of Troop 104 has been awarded the title of “Arkansas Eagle Scout of the Year” by the Arkansas Society, Sons of the American Revolution. Matthew is the first member of Troop 104 to receive this distinguished recognition, which comes with a check for $1000.00.
Matthew was selected because of his character, his service, the scope of his Eagle Scout project, and the essay he submitted to the SAR. Matthew’s essay on Revolutionary War patriot Nathanael Greene was graded a perfect score by the judge, a first for an Arkansas Eagle Scout.
Matthew is an active Senior at Gosnell High School. He looks forward to attending a four-year university in the fall, and he aspires to become a research scientist. He says “It’s important to me that my work benefits humankind. It would be my dream to have my name remembered in the world of science.”
When asked about his future, Matthew also says “I want to support the troop that nurtured and supported me in my path to Eagle.” He looks forward to helping younger scouts achieve their best.
Please join us in recognizing Matthew and everyone in troops 104 and 316. Mark your calendar for our Scouting Ministries Sunday: February 21st.
