He was recognized in a ceremony Sunday, Aug. 19, at Eudora High School.
A member of Eudora Troop No. 64, sponsored by the Eudora Lions Club, Bart is one of approximately two percent of all Boy Scouts who attain the Eagle rank.

For his Eagle project, he installed corner section marker posts with identifying plates for each section located at the Eudora Cemetery.
He has served as Assistant Patrol Leader for his troop. His high adventure travels included canoe trips to the boundary waters in Ely, Minn., and Atikokan, Ontario, Canada. He recently returned from hiking in New Mexico at the Philmont National Boy Scout Ranch.
Bart is a junior at Eudora High where he is a member of the knowledge bowl team and chess team. He is the sound technician for the school plays and is an honor roll student.
He is the son of Raymond and Teresa Carroll, Eudora, and the grandson of Bill and Janiss Harlow, Lucas, and Mary Carroll Sextro, Olathe.
