In Scout Troop 260’s traditional Eagle Scout ceremony on the Fellowship Hall stage of Second Baptist Church, Mary Cashman carefully adds the Eagle Scout badge to her son’s uniform shirt. At the right are Evan’s father Edward Cashman and his grandfather Bob Leclerc, who is wearing the Eagle badge he earned quite a few years ago.

Home from college for Thanksgiving last November, new Eagle Scout Evan Cashman had his official ceremony in Boy Scout Troop 260 and received his Eagle credentials. After graduating from Suffield High School last spring, Evan is now in his first year at Savannah College of Art and Design, where he is majoring in film.

He entered the Scout program through Cub Scout Pack 209 and advanced to become the Assistant Patrol Leader of Troop 260 as well as a Brotherhood member of the Order of the Arrow, the Boy Scout honor society. Along with all the other achievements for the rank of Eagle Scout, Evan’s Eagle service project was to build a sand box about 6 feet square, with benches alongside the sand, for Spaulding School. The unit has been installed in the fenced playground behind the school.

As a nice touch in his Eagle Scout ceremony, Evan awarded a mentor pin to his grandfather, who is also an Eagle Scout. The mentor pin is an optional award that may be given to someone who was a valued mentor in a new Eagle’s successful Scout career.
