RUTHS­BURG — Scouts from Troop 464 con­tin­u­ally strive for ex­cel­lence. As­sis­tant Scout Master Kelly Wright, Boy Scout Troop 464 in Ruths­burg, sub­mit­ted the fol­low­ing from 13-year-old R. Hazuda, a scout from Cen­tre­ville.

“I de­cided to strive for this Na­tional Hon­ors Pa­trol Award be­cause I be­lieve my pa­trol shows a lot of team­work, en­thu­si­asm, and ca­mara- de­rie,” Hazuda wrote. “I found this award while go­ing through my pa­trol leader hand­book, and I thought we could suc­ceed in all of the re­quire­ments. When I asked my Scout­mas­ter Char­lie if this was pos­si­ble for us to get, he re­sponded with say­ing, ‘ ab­so­lutely.’”

To com­plete the award, one of the re­quire­ments for Hazuda was to com­plete two ser­vice projects, which Hazuda and his fel­low scouts did by clean­ing up the land­scape of the Ruths­burg Com­mu­nity Cen­ter and St. Paul’s Church in­clud­ing leaf re­moval, prun­ing, plant­ing bed restora­tion and pick­ing up trash.

Hazuda said, “This award is sig­nif­i­cant to my pa­trol and lead­er­ship, be­cause we were the first pa­trol in Troop 464 to do it, and I was the first pa­trol leader to ac­com­plish this feat.”
