 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 Dakota Massmann

     Dakota began Scouting as a Cub Scout in elementary school. Once he graduated into Boy Scouting he quickly climbed the advancement ranks. He has attended numerous troop activities and summer camps. Dakota attended Philmont Scout Ranch in 2008 and the 2010 National Jamboree. It took advantage of the opportunities offered by the Scout program.
     Dakota earned the rank of Eagle Scout in 2011. He has earned 24 merit badges. Dakota has held many troop leadership roles, including patrol leader and senior patrol leader. He is the troop's nineteenth Eagle Scout. His Eagle project was to place granite markers at unmarked graves in the Oak Hill Cemetery located on the east side of Melrose. The project team also did some general clean-up while they were there.
