Copeland Green from Boy Scout Troop 948, a 2014 graduate of Amador Valley High School and current mechanical engineering student at Colorado State University, received his Eagle Scout award at a special Court of Honor ceremony Sunday at Centerpointe Presbyterian Church.
Green achieved the rank of Eagle Scout on Aug. 20, 2014, with his Eagle Scout leadership project involving designing and building improved storage for Valley Community Church in Pleasanton.
He first entered scouting as a Tiger Cub with Cub Scout Pack 901 and later earned the prestigious Arrow of Light award. He continued with Boy Scout Troop 948 chartered by Centerpointe.
In addition to earning 25 merit badges, Green served his troop as patrol leader, troop guide and librarian. He also attended the National Youth Leadership Training camp.
He participated in 111 nights of camping, hiked over 360 miles and completed more than 42 hours of community service. Green also took part in high-adventure training (HAT) activities: hiking 90-plus miles at Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico twice and kayaking two 50-mile trips down the Sacramento River.
