Samuel and Jacob Schumacher, members of Boy Scout Troop 574, Bothell, were awarded the Boy Scouts of America highest honor, the rank of Eagle Scout at a Court of Honor, Sunday, May 4. Samuel and Jacob are the sons of Jim and Katherine Schumacher. Many leaders of the troop were in attendance to honor Samuel and Jacob. Samuel returned the honor of mentor to Cedar Park Pastor Rich Haugo for significant impact in his life. Jacob returned the honor of mentor to both Matt Comstock for his valuable life skills and volunteerism towards Scouting, and to Howard Litterell, owner of H & K Floor Coverings, for his assistance with his Eagle project. In addition to the ceremony, the parents presented both Samuel and Jacob a gift to commemorate the occasion. This gift however, was actually a challenge to continue with the third point of the scout law: “A Scout is Helpful.” Jim and Katherine presented their sons with the “Schumacher Challenge,” a gift of $500 each. Their sons have one year to utilize the funds and their abilities to impact their community in a positive way and report back to those in attendance with how they chose to utilize the funds to impact the community.
Samuel’s Eagle Scout project benefited Cedar Springs Camp in Lake Stevens, Wash. The project included planning, budgeting and coordinating the construction of 12 picnic tables for the camp. Samuel has enjoyed the scouting program since he joined in 2003 as a Cub Scout.
