 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 Gerry Wensmann

    Gerry Wensmann became a Boy Scout when he graduated into the troop from his Webelos Den in May, 1982. He was very active in the troop, attended numerous weekend camps and most summer camps. He attended Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico twice, in 1986 and 1989.
     Gerry earned his Eagle Rank in July 1989. His Eagle Court of Honor was held on September 9, 1989 at the High School Auditorium. Gerry was the troop's second Eagle Scout, Melrose's third.
