(PRESS RELEASE) Wauseon, Ohio – Robert Crossland, a member of Boy Scout Troop 8 chartered to the American Legion Post 265, has reached the summit of Scouting by attaining the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout, the highest achievement a Scout can earn.

For his Eagle Scout project, Robby tackled a task that would benefit his community for years to come. He embarked on a mission to revitalize a local park by installing new benches, a project that demanded 114.5 hours of dedication and meticulous planning.
