Joseph Ryan Nugen Makes Eagle Scout
Teen Built Bird Houses for Ranken Jordan Pediatric Bridge Hospital for Eagle Project
Florissant, Missouri 9/7/19- Joseph Ryan Nugen, a member of the Boy Scout Troop #713 and a resident of Florissant, has earned the honor of Eagle Scout, the highest rank that the Boy Scouts of America offers. Only 3 to 4 percent of Boy Scout members ever attain this prestigious honor.
Joseph Nugen, age 13, achieved the 21 merit badges required to receive the Eagle Scout award. For his final project he had bird houses built for Ranken Jordan Pediatric Bridge Hospital and as a surprise for the Ranken Jordan patients he also collected over $2500 worth of toys. Ranken Jordan is a not for profit, specialty pediatric rehabilitation hospital located in Maryland Heights, Missouri.
Joseph Nugen thanks all the organizations, individuals and volunteers that helped him complete his project. He looks forward to continuing to help his Troop flourish.
A ceremony honoring Joseph Nugen will take place on October 6th, 2019.
