A Roscoe Boy Scout has earned the highest advancement award the Boy Scouts of America offers — the Eagle Scout Award.

Riley Bell, a member of Roscoe Troop 620, is one of 9 scouts in the troop who achieved the Eagle Rank in 2017. Approximately 4% of all Boy Scouts achieve Eagle Rank. Each candidate has to earn 21 merit badge and complete a community, church, or synagogue-related service project.

Bell, who is Autistic, did his service project at Courtney Samuelson’s Early Childhood program at Ledgewood School in Roscoe. He built Samuelson a corner cabinet with tilted shelves so the items she uses for daily activities would stay put.

Bell is a Junior at Hononegah High School and is active in the Stateline Robotics Team.

Bell will be recognized in a ceremony on Saturday, May 12th at 10 a.m. at Porter Park in Roscoe.
