For Taylor Hill of rural Greenville, Boy Scouting is a family tradition. Hill was recently awarded his Eagle Scout, the highest award given in the Boy Scouts. His uncle, Bud Carpenter, also an Eagle Scout, led Hill in the oath and candlelight ceremony. Carpenter told WGEL Hill started in Cubs as a young boy, made the goal to become Eagle and accomplished that goal.
For his Eagle Scout project, Hill refurbished and reconstructed the stone oven in Patriot’s Park, with help from friends and family. Hill’s grandfather, James Carpenter, was also recognized during the ceremony for 35 years of leadership with the Boy Scouts.
