Benjamin Tengowski held his Court of Honor to be presented with the Eagle Scout Rank on October 29, 2017. He was awarded his Eagle Scout Rank on July 6th, 2017 following an Eagle Scout board of Review. Benjamin is a member of troop 831 in Kohler which is chartered by the Kohler Police Athletic League (KPAL).
The Eagle Rank is the highest rank in scouts and less than four percent of scouts attain this rank. To become an Eagle, Ben was required to earn a minimum of 21 merit badges, 11 of which are Eagle required badges. He also had to show leadership, which he has done both as the Senior Patrol Leader in his troop as well as working at Bear Paw Scout Camp in Mountain, Wisconsin for four summers leading younger scouts. Finally, to become an Eagle, Ben had to complete a community service project. Ben worked with the Village of Kohler to set up his project of sanding and staining the bleachers at Lost Woods Park, as well as pull weeds and lay stones under the bleachers. Benjamin led 11 scouts in completing this project.
Benjamin is a brotherhood member of the Order of the Arrow, the National Honor Society for Boy Scouts. This past summer, Benjamin was a staff member with the Order of the Arrow museum exhibit at the National Boy Scout Jamboree at the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reservation in West Virginia.
Benjamin is a senior at Kohler High school and is very active in local community theater, school productions, Madrigals, drumline, pep band, jazz band, as well as serving as manager for the football and basketball teams, and a member of the Kohler boys Tennis team.
