Ian Jones received the Eagle Scout Award from the Boy Scouts of America during a ceremony held on April 14. The Eagle Scout Award capped off a 10 year scouting experience. Ian started scouting with Pack 200 Continental and earned the top Cub Scout Arrow of Light along with the religious God and Me and God and Family Awards. Ian then crossed over to Troop 19 Oakwood. While a member of Troop 19 Ian attended the 2010 Centennial National Jamboree in Fort AP Hill, VA and the 2013 National Order of the Arrow Convention at Michigan State University. Ian is a Brotherhood member in the Order of the Arrow. Ian has attended Camp Lakota Summer Camp 4 years and was on a volunteer member of the 2012 Camp Lakota staff. Ian has also earned the Boston Freedom Trail Award.
One of the requirements of the Eagle Scout Award is the Eagle Scout Project. Ian’s Eagle Scout Project was to work with the Christ United Methodist UMW group in compiling a Continental history book. Entitled “Quasquicentennial: 125+ stories of the last 25 years” the book looks at 487 events that happened in Continental from the years 1986 to 2011. This project resulted in a 190 page book that was the result of over 400 volunteer hours from 40 people. Ian was nominated for a Jefferson Award for Public Service on the basis of this work.
While a member of Troop 19, Ian has served as scribe, quartermaster, Chaplain’s aide, and is currently an assistant patrol leader. He is a student at Continental High School where he is Sophomore Class Vice President, a member of the Quiz Bowl Team and Marching Band, and is active in the High School Drama productions. Ian is the son of Mike and Pam Jones.
