Three Argyle High School students recently earned the rank of Eagle Scout.
The three Scouts belong to Troop 192, Argyle, of the Longhorn Council, Frontier Trails District. Each young man reached the rank of Eagle Scout over the summer and was honored for their accomplishments at an Eagle Scout Court of Honor ceremony at Argyle United Methodist Church on October 1.
Nikolas “Niki” Fillhart, son of Douglas and Susanne Fillhart, is a 15-year-old sophomore. Niki started Scouting as a Tiger Cub Scout nine years ago, graduated with the Arrow of Light Award and bridged over into Troop 192 in 2007. Presently he is proudly wearing 33 merit badges.
Niki’s Eagle Scout Service Project was a covered sandbox benefiting the children at Spirit Horse Therapeutic Riding Center in Corinth, a ranch providing hippotherapy for children with disabilities.
Ty E. Crawford is a 15-year-old sophomore. He is the son of Lance and Kim Crawford and has been involved in Scouting for eight years. He currently holds 37 merit badges.
Ty’s Eagle Scout Project was building a multi-use covered deck for Argyle United Methodist Church.
Joshua Goodpaster is a 17-year-old senior. His parents are John and Jennifer Goodpaster, and Serene Griffin. Joshua started Scouting 11 years ago as a Tiger Cub Scout. He has been in Troop 192 for six years since moving to Argyle.
His eagle Project was a pergola over a sandbox at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church Daycare Center in Denton. This project allowed the children of the daycare facility to play outside during the summer.
Joshua is a member of the Order of the Arrow, Scouting’s National Honor Society.
Niki, Ty, and Joshua plan to stay active in Troop 192 until their 18th birthday.
