Harrison Krause, senior, earned the rank of Eagle Scout on October 25, 2017. A member of Boy Scout Troop 360 from Glendale, Missouri, Krause has earned 21 merit badges, served as patrol leader and become a member of the Order of the Arrow throughout his time as a scout.

Before becoming an Eagle Scout, all potential scouts must complete an Eagle Scout Leadership Project. To meet this criteria, Krause designed and built a bench for First Presbyterian Church of Kirkwood, of which his family has been a member for over 50 years. The bench was built to serve as a comfortable spot for churchgoers to wait before their ride arrives after church services.

Krause began Boy Scouts in fifth grade, and has enjoyed how the program has challenged him through the years. What he loves most about the program is the opportunity to have a network of positive connections outside of school.

“I think [joining Boy Scouts] was a good idea,” Krause said. “It was a good experience for me to make friends and become a leader.”

At KHS, Krause plays on the varsity soccer and JV hockey teams. The Court of Honor ceremony, during which Krause will officially become an Eagle Scout, will occur in the coming months.
