Eagle Scouts recognized

Jordan Millington and John Donlan have earned the highest advancement award the Boy Scouts of America offers to Scouts, the Eagle Scout award. They were recognized in a ceremony on Nov. 18 at the Eagan Community Center.

Each Eagle candidate must earn 21 merit badges and successfully complete a community service project.

Millington’s Eagle project was completed at Greenleaf Elementary School in Apple Valley. It involved creating a perennial garden and building a trellis on the south side of the school.

Donlan’s project was completed at Highland Cemetery in Lakeville. The project consisted of clearing brush, removing lichens from headstones and placing a headstone on an unmarked grave.

Both boys are members of Boy Scout Troop 298 in Apple Valley. Millington, a senior at the School of Environmental Studies, is the son of Rick and Deb Millington. Donlan, a senior at Eastview High School, is the son of Patrick and Lori Donlan.
