Entering Troop 17 in spring of 1994 from Pack 489 of Conway School, Logan’s Scouting career was characterized by steady, consistent progress both in his advancement and in his leadership responsibilities. There has seldom been a Court of Honor where Logan has not received an award or recognition.
Logan’s first leadership position was as the Assistant Patrol Leader of the Moose Patrol, later becoming its Patrol Leader. Afterwards, Logan served as an instructor in the Troop’s Leadership Corps before distinguishing himself for fifteen months as an outstanding Senior Patrol Leader.
In that position, Logan performed admirably and selflessly as a well-organized, quietly efficient leader who demonstrated good judgement and rock-solid character. Logan was subsequently appointed Junior Assistant Scoutmaster.
Logan was also an active participant in the Troop’s outdoor program including campouts, camporees, hikes, and seven years at summer camp, earning the Troop’s Field Service award. In recognition of his camping abilities and leadership skills, Logan was elected by his fellow campers in 1997 to the Order of the Arrow, Scouting’s national society for Scout honor campers. Last summer, Logan was part of Troop Seventeen’s ten-Scout contingent to Philmont — BSA’s national high-adventure camp in the mountains of New Mexico. Has was an Honor Camper twice and in 1998 was the Troop’s Scout of the Year.
For his Eagle service project, Logan enlisted Scouts and adults to help him design, construct, and install numerous classroom nameplates for the Epworth Children’s Center.
Logan performed as member of the Ladue Chapel Carillon Bell Ringers for the last three years and toured with them to California, Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Arkansas for performances. He also plays the trumpet in the MICDS concert and jazz bands.
An outstanding student, Logan lias been on the honor roll every year at MICDS. He was the recipient of James Schindler Wood Award for outstanding overall student in the 8th grade, recipient of the 10th grade History Award and is an excellent math student scoring 760 [out of 800) on his SATs and 34 [out of 36) on his ACTs.
Logan is expert skier and a good athlete. A strong team player, Logan started at guard his freshmen year and at center for JV football the last in 1999-2000. He was a member of the MICDS ABC League championship football team each year and in 1999-2000 was offensive player of the game versus Ladue.
Logan has volunteered at Fair Saint Louis five summers, worked on construction of it for two. He was a referee and scorekeeper for the West County Basketball League for three years.
Logan served as a Den Chief for Pack 344 for two years and completed the St Louis Area Council’s Junior Leader Training course. He is a member of the Bakers, Troop Seventeen’s unique organization for older Scouts and served as Head Baker, its president. He earned the honor camper, honor patrol, and attendance ribbons. He also wears the Troop Leadership Cocade — emblematic of his outstanding leadership skills and service.
Logan recently completed the BSA adult leader training program. As an indication of his skills and high esteem, Logan was selected as a Patrol Leader in this training course — even though he was the youngest trainee and the only one under 21 years of age. He was subsequently promoted to Assistant Scoutmaster of Troop 17.
One would have to look long and hard to find a better example of what an Eagle Scout represents than Logan Henderson. He is a very responsible and earnest young man — selfless, dedicated, service-minded, and well liked — a fine example of the Scouting ideal for other Scouts to emulate.
