Owen Dennis Multer was presented with the Eagle Scout Rank on February 3, 2018 by Boy Scout Troop 831 at the Waelderhaus in Kohler. He earned his Eagle Scout Rank on September 7, 2017, at the age of fourteen, following approval by an Eagle Scout Board of Review.
A member of Troop 831, chartered by the Kohler Police Athletic League (KPAL), Owen is one of approximately 4 percent of all Boy Scouts who attain the rank of Eagle. Each Eagle Scout must earn a minimum of 21 merit badges, demonstrate leadership, and successfully complete a community service project in order to earn Scouting’s highest rank. Owen led over twenty-one volunteers in renovating the grounds of Generations Intergenerational Center in Plymouth in May of 2017. Volunteers spent over seventy-five hours creating, rebuilding and refinishing raised planter beds and spreading mulch around the grounds in new and existing beds around the facility. Owen secured generous donations from Oostburg Lumber and Superior Lawn and Garden Center, which helped make this project possible.
Owen began scouting in 2009 with Pack 3831 of Kohler, where he earned the Arrow of Light Award. He has been an Instructor, Scribe, Assistant Patrol Leader, and Bugler. He was elected by his troop in 2017 to join the Order of the Arrow (OA), Scouting’s National Honor Society. He is currently an ordeal member. He has earned his Bronze Eagle Palm.
A freshman at Kohler High School, Owen is a member of concert band, pep band, jazz band and the junior varsity soccer team. He is a caddy for Pine Hills Country Club and an official for the YMCA Youth Soccer Program. He is the son of Laura and Brent Multer, and the grandson of Diana and Robert Multer, Dennis Thieme and the late Hazel Thieme.
