Eagle Scout Award
Drew Osterman, age 16, of Stillwater has earned the highest advancement award the Boy Scouts of America offers to Scouts, the Eagle Scout Award.
A member of Boy Scout Troop 169, Osterman is one of approximately 4 percent of all Boy Scouts who attain the Eagle rank, according to Scoutmaster Larry Osterman.
Each candidate must earn 21 merit badges and successfully complete a community, church, or synagogue-related service project to earn his Eagle; Osterman chose a project that provided spectator benches for the baseball fields at Grant City Hall.
He has served in leadership positions as Patrol Leader and Senior Patrol Leader.
Osterman joins other outstanding American citizens who have become Eagle Scouts, among them former President Gerald R. Ford, Jr., astronaut Neil Armstrong, cinematographer Steven Spielberg, and the head of the F.B.I., William Sessions.
He is the son of Larry and Amy Osterman of Stillwater, MN.
