Boy Scout Troop 201 honored Tyler Fugina, 18, at an Eagle Scout Court of Honor on Sunday, December 13, 2015.
The ceremony was held at Good Shepherd Church in Plover. Fugina is the son of Eric and Karrie Fugina of rural Bancroft.
Only five percent of Scouts attain the highest rank of the Boy Scouts of America. An Eagle Scout must have completed at least 21 merit badges and organized a service project that benefits his church, community or school. Fugina led a crew that made and posted signs that marked trails by name and distances at the Boston School Forest.
Fugina joined Cub Scout Pack 222, as a first grader, at Plover-Whiting School. He joined Boy Scout Troop 201 at St. Bronislava as a fifth grader. Tyler was inducted into The Order of the Arrow, as well as earned the rank of Brotherhood, in the Honor Society of Scouting.
Tyler regularly camped at Camp Fletcher in Stevens Point and Tesomas Scout Camp in Rhinelander. Most recently he participated in a High Adventure trip to Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico.
Fugina, a senior at SPASH, enjoys spending time with friends and played SPASH soccer all four years of high school. Tyler has been active in both jazz and concert bands. He belongs to Future Business Leaders of America and is one of the managers of the Panther Pro Shop at SPASH.
Fugina will be attending UW-Eau Claire and plans to major in Business Administration.
