|Hill earns rank of Eagle Scout|
Ronnie "Chip" Hill Jr. received his Eagle Rank in the Boy Scouts during a ceremony at the First United Methodist Church in Jonesville Saturday evening.
He is the son of Ronnie and Margaret Hill of Wildsville.
Hill is a member of Boy Scout Troop 21 of Jonesville, which is part of the Louisiana Purchase Council, and is also a member of the elite group of Order of the Arrow, Comanche Lodge 254.
The Rev. Dave Carlton was the Master of Ceremonies.
John Kissienwetter, District Advisor for the Order of the Arrow and an Eagle Scout, gave the "call of the Eagle" during the ceremonies.
Darren Gnatt, District Executive for the Louisiana Purchase Council, gave the "oath of the Eagle."
Rep. Andy Anders on behalf of the governor gave Hill a certificate commemorating the honor, and a U.S. flag flown over the nation's capitol in Hill's honor was presented to Troop 21 on behalf of Congressman Rodney Alexander.
U.S. Sens. Mary Landrieu and David Vitter forwarded letters of congratulations and certificates of honor.
Also on the program were Boy Scout Troop 21, Jesse McClure, Senior Patrol Leader; Cindy Sanders, chair of the Boy Scout Committee for Jonesville; Albert Pilson, Scoutmaster for Troop 21; and Sandra Carlton, previous scoutmaster.
To become an Eagle Scout, Hill had to earn 21 merit badges. From age 11 to his present age of 18, Hill has earned 39.
In his Eagle Scout project, Hill led the planning and implementation of a community project to renovate the beaten and weathered "welcome" sign in Jonesville, which had been a previous scouting project years earlier.
Rev. Carlton said that only two out of every 100 boys who sign up for scouting make it to the rank of Eagle.
"Through Chip's efforts our troop has a disaster preparedness plan which was recently implemented following the storms to feed 200 people," he said.
