Eagle Scout Andrew James Case of Troop 26 in Palm Harbor was recently recognized as the winner of the 2012 Eagle Scout scholarship contest sponsored by the Clearwater Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution, for which he received $100.

Case's winning scholarship entry included an essay on the Battle of Camden, which took place Aug. 16, 1780, in South Carolina during the Revolutionary War and in which Case's ancestor, Michael Abraham Awalt Sr., a private in the Rowan County, N.C., militia, participated.

Case, a senior at Palm Harbor University High, is the son of Richard and Pamela Case.
