On July 20, 2014, Matthew Covalt received his Eagle Scout Award at his Court of Honor held at the Presbyterian Church. Many friends, family and fellow scouts attending. As part of the Court of Honor, Covalt presented a pin to his parents. He also presented a Mentor Pin to his Scout Master, Don Roher, explaining what he'd learned from him related to both scouting and everyday life. Covalt's participation in the scouts program began when he joined as a Cub Scout in first grade. His advancement to Eagle Scout, the highest possible rank for scouts, is an achievement attained by about 4 percent of all Boy Scouts. In order to advance to the Eagle Scout rank, scouts must complete a project that contributes to the community. Covalt's project was the construction and placement of picnic tables and fire rings at Pats Campground. The materials for the project were purchased by the Lions Club of Wrangell, but Covalt was responsible for their construction.
