Members of Boy Scout Troop 398 who have achieved the rank of Eagle Scout will be in the spotlight Sunday during a Court of Honor scheduled to get underway at 5:30 p.m. at the LDS Church, 1830 Foothill Blvd., La Cañada.
The new Eagle Scouts are Theodore Chamberlain, Kristian Fors and HeSu Song.
Chamberlain, who recently graduated from La Cañada High School, has been a member of Troop 398 since 2013. For his Eagle project, he rebuilt and restored his school’s softball field backstops, with the support of friends, family and troop leaders. He will start his freshman year at Claremont McKenna College later this month, where he will continue playing his favorite sport, football.
Fors, also a recent graduate of LCHS, attained the Eagle Scout rank in June 2016. He started his Scouting involvements as a Cub Scout at Palm Crest Elementary School before becoming a member of Boy Scout Troop 398. Fors’ Eagle project involved coordinating a free dental clinic with AYUDA International, an affiliate of the USC School of Dentistry, where 88 local residents received care. He plans to attend Utah State University.
Song recently graduated from North Hollywood High School. He been Scouting since he was 8 as a Cub Scout and eventually joined Troop 398. For his Eagle project, he worked with the arborist for the city of Los Angeles, Leon Boroditsky, and fellow Scouts to plant trees, clean up, and lay mulch in Griffith Park’s scenic Fern Dell. Song says the Scouting experience has been invaluable to him and he intends to continue following its principles.
