Teen earns eagle scout honor
Jason Jarrett of Gardnerville recently received his Eagle Scout honor at the State Legislative Council Bureau after completing his community service requirement by organizing several hundred hours of volunteer restoration work on the Carson River.
Jason’s father, Mike Jarrett also received his Eagle rank from the same troop, Troop 140, in 1969.
Jason, who is a senior at Douglas High School, also went to the National Jamboree in Washington D.C. Over 40,000 Boy Scouts from every state attended and Jason was able to shake the president’s hand during the opening ceremonies.
The Eagle Scout rank is the highest honor given to Boy Scouts. Only 2 percent of Boy Scouts achieve this rank.
