Tala Atoafa earns Eagle Scout award

Tala Atoafa is the 20th Eagle Scout in Meeker to receive his award since the first Eagle Scout award was presented to Meeker Scouts beginning in 1948. He joins his friend Collin Cochran and his brother Alema as Eagle Scouts. Less than five percent of all Scouts earn the Eagle Scout award. More than two million young men have earned the Eagle Scout award since Scouting’s founding more than 100 years ago. Among these are many famous individuals such as astronauts, corporation presidents, physicians, lawyers, professors and college presidents, congressmen and senators, and a president of the United States, as well as many more distinguished professions. Being an Eagle Scout opens many doors for college admission applications and careers, as it is well known as a credential for outstanding leadership abilities and citizenship. The Western Colorado Council of Boy Scouts of America, and the Meeker community extend sincere congratulations to Tala on this outstanding achievement.

MEEKER I Tala Jade Atoafa Jr., was presented with the Eagle Scout award, which is Scouting’s highest honor at an Eagle Scout Court of Honor held Saturday, Feb. 23 at the Meeker Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
