Logan Griffin, an Eagle Scout and graduate of Creekview High School, was recently awarded a $5,000 scholarship through the National Eagle Scout Association.
According to Logan’s mother Renee Griffin, Logan was one of 53 Eagle Scouts who were awarded scholarship money from the NESA out of approximately 4,000 applicants.
“He had to submit all of his information on what he had done in his scouting career,” Renee Griffin said. “He also had to provide information on community service work he had done and his academic accomplishments as well.”
“I was really honored to receive this. It was nice to get something back for all of the hard work I put into this,” Logan Griffin said.
During his Boy Scout career, Griffin said he served in a variety of leadership positions with Troop 1099, including Senior Patrol Leader, Patrol Leader, Assistant Patrol Leader, Scribe and a Leave No Trace Instructor for his troop. He earned 31 merit badges, completed 117 total service hours and helped renovate Poole’s Mill Bridge Park for his Eagle Scout service project. This included building two brand new picnic tables and two benches for the park, as well as re-staining three benches already installed at the park.
Not only has Griffin earned recognition for achieving the rank of Eagle Scout, he was also captain of the swim team at Creekview during his senior season and graduated high school as a Georgia Scholar 4.5 GPA with an Engineering Pathway designation. Griffin will be attending the University of Georgia this fall, majoring in Mechanical Engineering and said this scholarship will go a long way toward obtaining his degree.
