Bart Allen Carroll, 16, Eudora, has earned the Eagle Award, the highest advancement award the Boy Scouts of America offers to Scouts.

He will be recognized during a ceremony at 2 p.m. Sunday in the Eudora High School Auditorium.

Bart is a member of Eudora Troop 64, sponsored by the Eudora Lions Club.

To earn the award, Scouts must earn 21 merit badges and successfully complete a community, church or synagogue-related service project. Bart earned 32 merit badges.

For his Eagle project, he chose to install corner section marker posts with identifying plates for each section in the Eudora Cemetery.

Bart has served as assistant patrol leader for his troop. He has participated in canoe trips in Ely, Minn., and Atikokan, Ontario. He recently returned from hiking at the Philmont National Boy Scout Ranch in New Mexico.

Bart is a junior at Eudora High School, where he is a member of the knowledge bowl and chess teams. He is the sound technician for the school's plays and an honor roll student.

He is the son of Raymond and Teresa Carroll, Eudora, and the grandson of Bill and Janiss Harlow, Lucas, and Mary Carroll Sextro, Olathe.

Douglas County's Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts will have their second annual Lawrence Scouting Extravaganza from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. today at West Side Presbyterian Church, 1024 Kasold Drive.
