“Spirit of the Eagle” awarded to Dreilings PDF Print E-mail



At a ceremony held at the Grant United Methodist Church on Sunday, Nov. 18, the Dreiling family was presented the “Spirit of the Eagle” award in honor of Michael Dreiling, who passed away prior to completion of his Eagle Scout project. The Spirit of the Eagle is presented posthumously to Boy Scouts worthy of Eagle Scout status, but who have died prior to completion of the requirements. Michael had completed all of his merit badge work, and was in the planning stage of his Eagle Scout project, when he died as the result of an auto accident. An Eagle Scout project will be completed at a later date in his honor. In attendance at the ceremony were the Dreiling family, including Dawnya, Laura and Rick (middle), Boy Scout leader Jon Forney who presented the award (third from right) and fellow boy scouts (l-r): Timothy Johnson, Chase Miyamoto, Elliot Carlson and Kaden Kammerer.
