On Aug. 5, the Ashe County Board of Commissioners honored Anderson Lee Moore, son of Don and Mary Anne Moore for achieving the rank of Eagle Scout, the Boy Scouts of America’s highest rank.

“Anderson Lee Moore has brought honor and distinction to himself, his family, school, community, Scoutmaster and Troop 214 by achieving the rank of Eagle Scout,” Ashe County Commissioner Larry Rhodes said. “We wish you the best in life and we know that you’ll do well. I’d also like to thank Don and Mary Anne Moore. I know this means a lot to them as it does to us.”

Moore has been involved in scouting since first grade, when he became a Cub Scout, according to Rhodes. Along his journey, he has earned 29 merit badges and the ranks of Scout, Tenderfoot, First and Second Class, Star and Life Scout, in addition to serving as Patrol Leader, Assistant Patrol Leader, Quartermaster and Scribe.

He has earned Cub Scouting’s highest honor the Arrow of Light, the God and Country Award, and has been selected into the National Scouting Honor Society.

In 2010, Moore attended the National Boy Scout Jamboree at Fort A.P. Hill, and in 2012 he distinguished himself by meeting all the requirements for Eagle Scout by coordinating and leading his troop in the completion of an Eagle Service Project, the construction of an outdoor aquatics classroom at New River State Park to be used by school groups studying wildlife in and around the New River.
