New Eagle Scout Correbin Day is shown at the gazebo at Oaklawn Cemetery. Repairing and landscaping the structure and surroundings was Day’s Eagle Scout Project. More than two dozen volunteers worked with him on the project, including his fellow scouts with Sulphur Troop 160.

OAKLAWN CEMETERY GAZEBO BEFORE & AFTER

Correbin Day has earned the highest rank in Boy Scouting. He passed his Board of Review recently, to become the first Eagle Scout from a Sulphur troop in a generation.

Day is a member of Troop 160, chartered to Sulphur United Methodist Church. His father, Brian, is the troop’s scoutmaster.

According to the Boy Scouts of America, only about five percent of scouts achieve the Eagle rank. The final requirement, prior to the review board, is the Eagle Service Project. In doing that, the scout demonstrates leadership, planning, and supervision of the project.

Day chose remodeling and repairing the gazebo at Oaklawn Cemetery. The structure had become somewhat deteriorated. Day’s first step was to get project approval from the City of Sulphur.
