Eagle Scout Scott Sifferman

   In a ceremony held at Holy Family Catholic Church, Kirkland resident Scott Daniel Sifferman received the Eagle Scout award, the highest rank in the Boy Scouts of America. Only two percent of all Boy Scouts become Eagles, and Scott is the first member of his church-sponsored Troop 615 to attain the rank since 1992.

   To earn his Eagle, Scott served as a leader in his troop, completed 42 merit badges, and planned, designed, and led others in the installation of a drainage system between locker bays at Cedar Park Christian School in Bothell.

   Scott is a senior at Cedar Park, where he has lettered in soccer and baseball for four years. He is a National Merit Scholar Finalist and has been named as an alternate in the Washington Scholarship program.

   Based on his scholarship, leadership, service, and character, Scott was elected in March as a charter member of the newly-formed chapter of the National Honor Society at his high school. He was a delegate to the 1998 National Young Leaders Conference in Washington D.C.

   Scott is also the layout editor and website designer for his school newpaper and is the French Club Treasurer. He and his French class recently returned from a field trip to Paris.

   The son of Bob and Sandee Sifferman of Kirkland, Scott will attend the Barrett Honors College at Arizona State University beginning in August. He plans to major in electrical engineering.
