AUBURN — Taylor Skidmore of Auburn Boy Scout Troop 169 has earned Scouting’s highest honor, the Eagle Award.

As a Boy Scout, Skidmore earned 21 merit badges and spent summer camps at camp Chief Little Turtle near Ashley. For his Eagle Scout service project, Skidmore completed improvements to Don Lash Park, building and hanging bat houses, remulching the playground area and repairing a fence.

During a Boy Scout court of honor ceremony, Skidmore was reminded of the many responsibilities of an Eagle Scout — to live with honor, loyalty, courage and a cheerful spirit.

Skidmore received letters of congratulation from local officials, the national Scout office and other prominent individuals. He received an eagle statuette from the Auburn Kiwanis Club and an American flag from the Auburn Elks.

Skidmore attends Indiana University and is the son of Chris and Christie Skidmore of Auburn.
