Pearson Bannen of Boy Scouts Troop 8, sponsored by First Baptist Church in Wilson, is shown with Scoutmaster Bobby Pittman after receiving the Eagle Scout badge at his Court of Honor on Saturday. Pearson is 16 years old and is an honor student at Wilson Early College Academy. His Eagle project was done for Cragmont Assembly in Black Mountain and involved constructing seven benches, two picnic tables and a gateway sign for Cragmont’s 2-mile hiking trail on the mountain behind the assembly. In addition, the trail was marked and it received a cleanup along the way. Pearson joined the Troop in February 2013. He is an Order of the Arrow member and has served as senior patrol leader, assistant senior patrol leader, OA troop representative and troop guide.
