New Eagle Scouts carry on families' tradition

TROOP 30

Triplets Jonathan, Jeffrey and Jeremy Bell became Eagle Scouts during a Court of Honor held at Brainerd United Methodist church.

The sons of Dr. Gary Bell and Laura Bell are seniors at Chattanooga School for the Arts and Sciences.

Their achievement continues a Scouting tradition in their family. Older brother James "JD" Bell, grandfather Ed McReynolds, two great-uncles and a cousin are also Eagle Scouts.

For the community service project required of all Eagle Scouts, the brothers took on three separate projects at Brainerd United Methodist Church, each done individually on different locations of the church property. The work consisted of landscaping, erosion control and beautification of the church grounds.

TROOP 270

Dakin Andrew Barrott became an Eagle Scout during a Court of Honor held at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

He is the seventh of seven sons in his family to earn Eagle, a status shared across four generations with his father, grandfather and great-grandfather.

The son of James and Sue Barrott is a sophomore at Soddy-Daisy High School, where he is a member of JROTC.

For his Eagle Scout community service project, Dakin organized about 140 people to help clean historic Engel Stadium after the shooting of the movie "42." As a group, they volunteered more than 750 hours.

Some of their activities included sweeping and power-washing the bleachers, planting flowers and shrubs, cleaning concession stands and bathrooms, power-washing the front entrance and painting.
