Clay senior attains the rank of Eagle Scout
Clay High School senior Daniel R. Corado has earned the highest rank in scouting, the Eagle Scout rank.
A member of Troop 131 sponsored by St. Luke’s Lutheran Church, Corado is the 25th scout to attain the rank of Eagle Scout under the guidance of Scoutmaster John Moore Jr.
Corado began scouting in Cub Pack 122 at Wynn Elementary School when he was in the fourth grade.
He crossed over to Troop 131 in 2002, where he advanced through the ranks required to become an Eagle Scout. The highlight f his scouting career was attending the National Scout Jamboree and camping at the Philmont National Scout Camp.
For his Eagle Scout project, Corado built a platform rest bench at Maumee Bay State Park on the nature trail walk. Construction of the project required the tools and some materials to be carried over a half mile. He spent a total of 73 hours on the project, obtaining help from fellow scouts, parents and friends. Funds were donated by the Zenobia Shrine Highlanders.
A Court of Honor was convened April 4 at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in Jerusalem Township. Oregon Mayor Marge Brown also designated April 4 as Daniel Corado Day.
Daniel offers special thanks to Darla Bohland, Diane Kissling and Sandra Stroshine for assisting him through Cub Scouts after the death of his mother, Sherry Corado.
He is the son of Kim and stepmother Susan Corado.
