Erik Curtis of Boy Scout Troop 495 was awarded his Eagle Scout Badge on July 2 in an Eagle Court of Honor held at Bently Science Park.

The event was attended by many relatives, friends and scouts. Special guests included Erik’s sister, Carolyn Smith, and her Eagle Scout husband, Gary Smith, and their two daughters from St. Louis, Mo.

Also in attendance were his grandparents, Calvin and June Peterson, from Agoura, Calif., and his uncles Rex and Gus Peterson and their families, from the Bay area.

He is the son of the Rev. Shepley Curtis and Joy Curtis of Gardnerville.
