LIVE OAK — Live Oak Mayor Frank Davis recently recognized a pair of area Boy Scouts for receiving their Eagle Scout rank.
Logan Barker and Hunter Robert Schenauer both received their Eagle Scout rank on May 30.
Barker is a 22-year-old special needs Scout, who has earned 42 merit badges and has served the Boy Scouts Troop 408 in a variety of leadership roles.
As part of a community service project, Barker and other scouts were at the Suwannee County Animal Control facility when Barker noticed the county sign off of U.S. Highway 129 was faded and the sign at the shelter itself wasn’t large enough to see from the road.
So Barker, for his Eagle Project, conducted a poll and noticed most people didn’t know where the shelter was located so he met with Sheriff Sam St. John and made a plan for a new logo and signs to bring more visual representation for the shelter.
Schenauer has earned 52 merit badges and served the Troop 408 in a variety of leadership roles as well.
He also completed a community service project by constructing a GaGa ball pit at Heritage Park. Schenauer organized the project and managed volunteers during the construction of the pit, which was completed in one weekend. Prior to that, he spent eight months on planning the project, funding it and working with Suwannee Parks and Recreation on the site for the pit.
Schenaur is a junior at Suwannee High School, where he is an honor roll student and is enrolled in the NJROTC program. He has also volunteered at the county’s animal shelter and loves to ride horses in the local riding club in Branford.
