Notes & Transcripts

Sixteen-year-old Noah Cornuet had planned a very ambitious project to complete the work for his Eagle Scout Badge. He had just gotten started on the project to make improvements to sites at his church and in his community, when he died suddenly due to a rare noncancerous heart tumor. Though part of the project was finished, a lot still needed to be done, and members of the community decide to honor the young Scout by finishing the work he began. About seventy people from the community joined forces to finish the work in one day. They worked on the church parking lot, built an access ramp, and finished Cornuet’s planned work at the local cemetery. Cornuet’s parents said they were happy to see so many people turn out. Many of those who came said they wanted to honor Cornuet’s memory and continue his tradition of helping people. The Scoutmaster of the troop said he expects Cornuet will receive his Eagle Scout Award posthumously after the review board meets with those who worked on the project.—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
