Marysville teen achieves Eagle Scout rank

David Samaniego, of Marysville, has earned the Boy Scouts of America Eagle Scout Award. The award will be presented at an Eagle Scout Court of Honor on Nov. 3 at Mountain View Presbyterian Church, the sponsoring organization for Samaniego’s Troop 419 as well as his home church.

Each Eagle Scout must earn 21 merit badges, show leadership and successfully complete a service project to earn the rank of Eagle. Samaniego’s Eagle Scout project was to build and install two bat houses at local parks. One was installed at the yurt village at Kayak Point County Park, and the other at the yurt village at River Meadows County Park.

Samaniego is currently a senior at Marysville Getchell High School. He has been active in school clubs, tennis and youth group. He also is a member of the Order of the Arrow. He plans to attend college in Washington after graduation.
