Nick Snyder, a member of Boy Scout Troop 906, was inducted into the ranks of Eagle Scouts July 13. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Snyder was forced to postpone his Court of Honor until Oct 4, when it was held at St. John’s Episcopal Cathedral. Snyder has been a member of Troop 906 for the past five and a half years, and he is the third scout in his troop to achieve Eagle ranking.

Snyder’s Eagle Scout project consisted of building two cornhole boards and a picnic table for the Ronald McDonald House in San Marco. “Through my Eagle Scout project, I learned how important leadership and patience is when working with others,” said Snyder. “Also being able to help the community in a small way gave me a great sense of pride and accomplishment. Making Eagle rank showed me how much work and determination I was able to put forth to obtain such a high honor. I learned many life skills along the way that I know I will be able to use throughout my life. Also, I made many good friends and memories throughout my years of scouting.”

Over the years, Snyder has attended many Boy Scout camps, including the National Jamboree and Sea Base High Adventure in the Florida Keys. During his tenure as a scout, he has earned 22 merit badges.

“We are very proud that Nick has reached this milestone after starting Cub Scouts in first grade 11 years ago,” said Samantha Snyder, his mother. “We have been able to watch him grow and learn leadership and life skills through the scouting experience.”

A San Marco resident, Snyder attends the Episcopal School of Jacksonville where he is a senior.
