Bryant receives Eagle Scout rank

EASLEY — Easley Boy Scout Troop 37 has a new Eagle Scout.
Brandon Bryant, a former senior at Easley High School and the son of Mr. and Mrs.
Gene Bryant, received his Eagle Scout Rank on November 14 to become the 75th
Eagle Scout for Troop 37. Bryant’s involvement in Scouting has spanned seven
years starting in Easley’s Cub Scout Pack 130 in 2003 where he worked to achieve
the Arrow of Light award in 2004. He joined Troop 37 in April of 2004 advancing
through the required seven Boy Scout ranks to Eagle Scout. Along the way, Bryant became
a member of the Order of the Arrow in 2006, hiked more than 42 miles, camped out 68
nights, and completed 123 service hours. One of the requirements
to obtain the rank of Eagle is to plan, implement, and complete a
service project. Bryant’s project was to rebuild a bridge on a nature trail
and install handrails on steps leading to the Easley First Baptist
Church Prayer Garden. The project improved the safety and access to this area
and demonstrated Bryant’s determination to complete this project despite
health challenges he endured.
