Sean T. Meininger has been presented Boy Scouting's highest rank, the Eagle Scout award.
The son of Dr. and Mrs. Marc Meininger of Sunnyside, he was presented the Eagle Scout award at a Court of Honor conducted by Boy Scouts Troop 643 at Bethany Presbyterian Church in Grandview.
A senior at Sunnyside High School, Meininger has been a member of Troop 643 in Grandview for the past seven years. He successfully completed all the requirements for Eagle Scout and passed his board of review in September 2004. Additionally, he completed the requirement for a Bronze Palm to be fixed to his Eagle award.
For his Eagle Scout service project, Meininger reconstructed an outdoor recreation area at an assisted living facility in Sunnyside. The project required 90 man-hours to complete.
Meininger has earned 32 merit badges, in addition to several other honors and awards during his tenure with Troop 643. He is a Brotherhood member of the Order of the Arrow, which is a national honor camping society of the Boy Scouts of America.
At his court of honor, the Eagle pledge was administered by Keith Dorsey of Outlook, the Advancement chairman of the Chief Kamiakin District of the Grand Columbia Council of the Boy Scouts of America. Curt Nealan of Sunnyside related the Trail to Eagle. The Eagle charge was administered by Tim Bardell of Sunnyside, himself an Eagle Scout and assistant scoutmaster of Troop 643. Scoutmaster Jim Davidson of Grandview presented the Eagle award.
