   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 Nick Ellering

    Nick Ellering ended his days as a Boy Scout in September, 2002, when he celebrated his eighteenth birthday. Nick began his Scouting days as a Cub Scout of Pack in the Twin Cities area. He dropped out of Scouting before he became a Webelos Scout, but joined Boy Scout Troop 68 in Melrose in the fall of 1996.
    Nick was a member of the Dragons Patrol for many of his years as a Boy Scout. He has served as Senior Patrol Leader and Patrol Leader, and other troop offices.
    He earned the rank of Eagle Scout in July of 2002. He has earned 24 merit badges. He is the troop's eleventh Eagle Scout. His Eagle project was a clothing drive of which the proceeds went to the Epilepsy Foundation. Nick did earn his Catholic religious award.
    Mr. Ellering graduated from high school in 2003. In addition to Scouting, he was active in high school football, hockey, and tennis, and is an active member of St. Mary's Church, and served as a youth member on one of the city's boards.
