Eagle Scout Trevor Joseph Case of Boy Scout Troop 26 in Palm Harbor has been named second-place winner of the 2013 Eagle Scout scholarship contest for the Florida Society of the Sons of the American Revolution.

At a Troop 26 meeting Feb. 11, Trevor received a $500 check from Jim Gibson, president of the SAR Clearwater Chapter, on behalf of the Florida Society.

He was also presented with a $200 check by compatriot Dan Hooper on behalf of the SAR Ladies Auxiliary.

Trevor's winning scholarship entry included an essay, "The Battle of Chelsea Creek," which was fought in May 1775 near Boston. Trevor is a descendant of Revolutionary War soldier Michael Abraham Awalt Sr., a private in the Rowan County, N.C., militia.

A junior at Palm Harbor University High, Trevor is the son of Richard and Pamela Case of Palm Harbor.
