Two North Pinellas Eagle Scouts, Rawlyn James Rogers and David Alexander Levy of Boy Scout Troop 468 in Largo, recently received Eagle Scout Certificates of Recognition for outstanding leadership and citizenship from the Sons of the American Revolution, Florida Society, Clearwater Chapter.

The presentations were made by SAR member Art Hays at an Eagle Scout Court of Honor June 24 at St. Paul's United Methodist Church in Largo.

For his Eagle Scout service project, 17-year-old Rawlyn designed, planned and led volunteers in the building and installation of a bookcase at the Church of Ascension Day School in Belleair. He also supplied children's books to fill it.

Rawlyn, the son of Rawlyn and JoAnn Rogers of Belleair, has been involved in Boy Scouts for eight years and has earned 34 merit badges.

The recent Dunedin High graduate was the cadet commanding officer of the school's Naval JROTC unit, where he was involved with the drill team, the academic team and the color guard. He has enlisted in the Army and plans to become an information technology specialist. Basic training begins in August.

For his Eagle Scout service project, David designed, planned and oversaw the installation of a fence at the Clearwater Airpark for the Civil Air Patrol, of which he is a member.

David has been a Scout for five years, earned 37 merit badges and is a member of the Order of the Arrow. This fall, the 16-year-old will be a senior at Osceola High, where he is a cross-country runner. His parents are Ron and Carol Levy of Clearwater.

To earn the rank of Eagle Scout, a Boy Scout must progress through the ranks of Tenderfoot, Second Class, First Class, Star and Life; earn 21 merit badges; serve six months in a troop leadership position; plan, develop and give leadership to a service project for any religious organization, school or community; take part in a scoutmaster conference; and successfully complete an Eagle Scout board of review.
