Spencer Harris of Troop 7 recently was awarded the Eagle Scout rank during a ceremony held at First Presbyterian Church. Shown with Spencer are his Scoutmaster, Tim Lane and Clifton Glover – member Tar River District Eagle Board.

For his project, Harris raised over $2,322 and used the funds to purchase and plant 19 trees at his school. The trees were planted to become a wind break for the tennis courts on campus.

With the help of his friends and other Boy Scouts from his troop, Spencer was able to complete his project this past summer. Spencer had over 126 man hours in the construction of his project. After completion, a workbook documenting his project was completed and presented to the Tar River District Eagle board during which Spencer was approved for the rank of Eagle Scout.

Spencer is the son of Roney Harris and Sally Harris of Rocky Mount. He is currently a senior at Rocky Mount Senior High School. Troop 7 is a chartered Boy Scout Troop at First Presbyterian Church. Boy Scouts is a United Way funded agency.
