Myles Jared Barney has achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. This accomplishment represents four years of fun, work, adventure and dedication to the Boy Scout program. His Eagle project was to collect unopened bottles of medications (Ibuprofen and Tylenol) to take to Guatemala to be distributed to people receiving surgeries from the Utah Medical Outreach group.
Myles and Scout Troop 246 (thanks to the generous members of the Stoddard ward) were able to collect enough medications for two medical trips for the UMO group.
Myles was then able to go with the UMO group to Guatemala, where he worked with the group cleaning tables and instruments to help with the surgeries.
Myles will receive his Eagle Scout award on Sunday, June 22 at 6 p.m. at the Stoddard chapel.
