Crockett County High School freshmen Everett Tritt was celebrated Sunday, February 16 for completing his Eagle Scout rank with Alamo Boy Scout Troop 53.
Tritt earned his Eagle rank on November 11, 2019.
He began his scouting adventure in 2011 as a first-grade Tiger Cub in Pack 53 and in October 2015, he earned his Arrow of Light crossing over into Troop 53.
Tritt held various leadership positions with boy scouts, including senior patrol leader, patrol leader, troop quartermaster, troop instructor and troop guide. He was elected by his scouting peers into the Order of the Arrow in 2017. In Order of the Arrow, he has served as troop representative and as a member of the ceremonies team.
Tritt completed 38 merit badges on his journey to Eagle. He attended summer camp at Camp Kia Kima and Camp Mack Morris. He also attended the 24th World Scout Jamboree in 2019 at the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in West Virginia. He camped with his troop a total of 46 nights and hiked over 100 miles. He earned the National Outdoor Achievement Award for camping and hiking.
His Eagle Scout project was building and placing Blessing Boxes in each of the five towns in Crockett County with non-perishable food and toiletry items for those in need to take free of charge.
While this ceremony was to celebrate all of Tritts’ accomplishments throughout scouting, he took special notice to honor God, his parents Chad Tritt and Jenny Hopper and his mentors Greg Emison, Cliff Franks and Brian Johnson throughout his journey.
