Billy Flint has earned the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest level of scouting.  Only about 4% of all Boy Scouts achieve this ranking.  This achievement is a culmination of the fundamental goals of scouting – citizenship, leadership, community service and outdoor skills. The standards of this award have been well-maintained over the years.

 Billy has been actively involved in scouting since he was in 1st grade.  He earned every available activity pin as a cub scout as well as other awards.  As a Boy Scout, Billy has earned over 30 merit badges and served in a number of leadership positions.  For his Eagle service project, Billy constructed a 1/10 mile walking trail behind the hospital cafeteria to help promote a healthier lifestyle.

 Billy’s project was made possible by the support of the following individuals and businesses: Pete Jarrett and Daniel Hensley at Mountaineer Landscaping, Great Meadows, Spruce Pine Mica, Spruce Pine Kiwanis Club, United Community Bank, Bombardier, Western Sizzlin, Hal Harrison, David Wylie, Dr. Charley Nash, Howell Sparks Real Estate, Maggiolo, Thomas & Assoc., Wellborn’s, Lisi
