Jack Spadafore, 18, of Rosemount has earned the highest advancement award the Boy Scouts of America offers to scouts, the Eagle Scout award.

Spadafore, a member of Boy Scout Troop 345 in Eagan, was recognized in a ceremony on Nov. 4.

Eagle Scout candidates must earn 21 merit badges and complete a community- or church-related project. Spadafore’s project involved classification, mapping and identification of buildings at Dakota City Heritage Village at the Dakota County Fairgrounds in Farmington.

Spadafore is a member of St. Thomas Becket Catholic Church in Eagan and is also a member of the Ultimate Frisbee team at Rosemount High School. He is a senior and attends both Rosemount High School and the School of Environmental Studies. He is the son of Jim and Peggy Spadafore and brother to Marty, who received his Eagle award in 2009.
