North Pinellas club news for Jan. 1

Eagle Scout Trevor J. Case and his younger brother, Life Scout Stuart J. Case, were recognized by Compatriot Art Hays of the Clearwater Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution for completing the organization's requirements for the Boy Scout Path to the SAR Eagle Scout scholarship program.

The brothers were presented with a Certificate of Recognition for their achievement and an SAR-BSA Partnership for Good Citizenship patch at the Court of Honor awards ceremony for Troop 26, which took place Dec. 17 at Palm Harbor United Methodist Church.

Requirements include the completion of the BSA American heritage, genealogy and law merit badges. Scouts earning these merit badges are given special consideration by the SAR when they attain the rank of Eagle and qualify to apply for the SAR Eagle Scout scholarship.

Trevor, 16, a junior at Palm Harbor University High School, and 12-year-old Stuart, a seventh-grader at Guardian Angels Catholic School in Clearwater, are the sons of Richard and Pamela Case of Palm Harbor.
