Teen Renovated Children & Youth Playground for Eagle Project


Wilson Tyler
Tyler Wilson

It took a few years, but on November 2, 2013, Tyler Wilson reached a lifetime goal by earning Scouting's highest honor, his Eagle Scout badge. The final step in the process was his Eagle Project, renovating the playground for Fayette County Children & Youth Services in Uniontown, PA.

Tyler is the son of Mark and Elizabeth Wilson of Belle Vernon, PA. Tyler is a member of Troop 1543, chartered by St. Sebastian's Roman Catholic Church in Belle Vernon, PA. His scoutmaster is Mr. Jeff Baker.

Tyler is an honors student at Belle Vernon Area High School where he is an active member of the BVA Golf Team. He is employed at Martin's Flower and Shrubs in Belle Vernon.

The fact that a boy is an Eagle Scout has always carried with it a special significance, not only in scouting, but also for the young man as he enters higher education, business or industry, and community service. Only about 5% of all Boy Scouts earn the rank of Eagle Scout.

Wilson joins other outstanding American citizens who have become Eagle Scouts, among them former President Gerald R. Ford, Jr., astronaut Neil Armstrong, and cinematographer Steven Spielberg.
