The three Scouts, members of Troop 95, were recognized at a Court of Honor held at Marathon Community Church, which sponsors the troop.
Each of the three earned at least 21 merit badges, including First Aid, Citizenship in the Community, Family Life and Camping; served six months in a troop leadership position; and completed an Eagle board of review.
A key part of earning the Eagle award is managing a community service project. Mahoney’s project centered on landscape improvements for the Greenville Place Assisted Living.
Boom built a picnic shelter on the grounds of Marathon Community Church, and King’s project provided water and electricity to the picnic shelter, clothes closet, and motor sports church buildings.
“This is a prestigious award that results from a lot of planning and hard work,” said Troop 95 Scoutmaster Mike Boom. “In 2008 just five percent of all Scouts earned the Eagle rank.”
Troop 95 meets at 7 p.m. on Monday nights at Marathon Community Church.
Boys interested in participating should telephone Mike Boom at 859-0462.
