 Melrose Boy Scout Troop 68
Eagle Scout Hall Of Fame

    The Eagle Scout is the highest rank attainable by a Boy Scout in America. The road which leads toward this rank is long and hard. There may be road blocks and obstacles that try to halt the completion of the rank. Time may run short. But the those who possess strong will and desire will complete the journey and prove they are worthy of the Eagle Rank.
     Melrose Troop 68 has several Scouts who have earned this distinction. This page is dedicated to one of them, his accomplishments, and to all Eagle Scouts from across the country.

Eagle Scout Chris Kluempke

     Chris Kluempke began his Scouting days as a Cub Scout of Pack 68 in Melrose, Minnesota. He graduated to the Boy Scout Troop 68 in February, 2000. He stayed active in Scouting until his eighteenth birthday on December 1, 2006. Chris continues to help with troop functions throughout his senior year of high school.
     Chris was a member of the Wise Wolves (later changed to Wussy Wolves) Patrol during his years as a Boy Scout in Troop 68. He has served as patrol leader and senior patrol leader. He also served as the troop scribe during a trip to the National Jamboree.
     Chris Kluuempke earned the rank of Eagle Scout in February 2007. He has earned 23 merit badges. He is the troop's sixteenth Eagle Scout.  Chris attended the 2001 and the 2005 National Jamborees, and participated in a trek to Philmont Scout Ranch in 2004. His Eagle project was to place granite grave markers on 25 unmarked graves in the Oak Hill Cemetary of Melrose.
     Chris will graduate from Melrose High School in 2007. In addition to Scouting, he has been active in high school activities, a member of the school's boy's tennis team, and a member of his local church.  He plans to attend college.
