 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 Brent Oja

    Brent Oja became a Boy Scout when he graduated into the troop from his Webelos Den in February, 1995. He regularly attended weekend camps and summer camps. In 1998, he attended Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico. He was a member of the Order of the Arrow. 
     Brent earned his Eagle Rank on February 18, 1999, when he was 15 years old. His Eagle Court of Honor was held on August 15, 1999, at the Melrose City Center meeting rooms. Brent is the troop's seventh Eagle Scout.
