Boy Scout Troop 46 held its first Court of Honor of the school year Aug. 25 at St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church in Zachary.

For their accomplishments in art, first aid, leatherwork, rifle shooting and swimming at Camp Avondale in Clinton over the summer, the Scouts earned merit badges and rank advancements in first class, life, tenderfoot and second class.

“They worked really hard to achieve these honors,” said Beth Kimmell, a Zachary School Board member who works at St. Patrick’s.

The troop’s Scoutmaster is John Sauls.
