On Thursday, January 18, Logan Schwent, a senior at SGHS, earned Scouting’s highest rank – Eagle. Logan is the son of Duane and Amy Schwent. Logan’s Trail to Eagle began six years ago. After 16 months, he had advanced through the ranks of Tenderfoot and Second Class, and became a First Class Scout. It is at this stage in scouting that a scout transitions from being lead, to being a leader. Throughout, he has been of great service to his troop and community. He has served as Scribe three times, Patrol Leader, Assistant Senior Patrol Leader and is currently serving his second term as Senior Patrol Leader. Logan has earned 28 Merit Badges, has camped with the troop 95 times, including a high adventure trip to the Grand Teton National Park, and has logged over 115 hours of service to our community. Logan has also received the honor of being elected to the Order of the Arrow, which is Scouting’s honor society. The final step in the process of earning the rank of Eagle, is the Eagle Project, for which Logan planned, built and installed playground equipment at the Preschool at Ste. Genevieve Elementary with financial assistance from County-Do-It Center and the Ste. Genevieve Elementary PTO.
Logan accomplished all of this while staying active at SGHS. He is a three-year letterman for the football team and has participated in basketball and baseball and received an Academic letter each year. He is also active in the Skills USA organization and a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Logan is a member of Troop 150, which is chartered by the American Legion Post 150. As an Eagle Scout, Logan joins fellow SGHS classmates, Max Upchurch and Brendon Bova, both of Bloomsdale Troop 410, as scouting’s “best of the best”.
