Two members of White City Boy Scout Troop 103 earned Eagle status and were so honored June 10 at a ceremony at TouVelle Park, near where they completed their Eagle project.
   
Troy Ellis, a six-year member, and Jerid Koch, a seven-year member of the troop, both just graduated from Eagle Point High School.
   
Their Eagle project was to build a 400 ft. fence between Denman Refuge and Touvelle Park. First they had to tear out some 50-yards of tangled hogwire and barbed wire. The fence they put in is made of pressured wood. They estimate it took them 80 hours of work each to complete the project.
   
Dan Ethridge, assistant manager of Denman, was most helpful to them, offering not only instruction, but assisting them in securing funding for the project.
   
Ellis, of White City,  will be going into the Air Force later this summer. Koch, of Shady Cove, will be going to WyoTech in Sacramento.
   
Their leader is Roger Hansen. He has been a Boy Scout leader in White City for 28 years. By Nancy Leonard
