Crestview Boy Scout donates Eagle project to Crestview NWFSC campus

Published: Thursday, June 20, 2013 at 12:18 PM.

Once Pensacola’s Boy Scout office reviews the project and gives Troop 773 confirmation, Woods will be pinned with his Eagle Scout badge at an upcoming court of honor ceremony.

Decade in scouting

Woods has been involved with Troop 773 for the past 10 years, earning 62 badges along the way.

"I think he enjoys (the Boy Scouts); I think he will stay in it one way or another," Shayne Campbell, his stepfather, said.

"He has accomplished a lot," troop leader Kelly Carrico said. "Scouts usually do community projects like cleaning up neighborhoods, but since I have been with the Boy Scouts, I have never seen anything like this.”

The scout expressed gratitude for the support of all his family, including James Woods, his father, and stepmother Julia Woods.

Donna Campbell, his mother, said she has noticed scouting’s benefits for her son since he was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome in grade school.
