Ashton Peters earns Eagle rank

His project was named “The Cimarron Thomas Memorial Walk for Suicide Awareness.” His goal was to bring awareness to the increasing rate of suicide. The project was a special memorial to a best friend he lost to suicide.

He has earned 36 merit badges, one bronze palm, one silver palm, and one gold palm. Ashton plans to continue with scouts.
