Shaun Maiter’s Eagle Scout Ceremony was held at Salem United Methodist Church on Jan. 17.

Shaun is son of Leslee and Tim Maiter.

The rank of Eagle Scout is the highest honor attainable through the Boy Scouts of America

Shaun, a member of Troop 328, got started with Scouting in 1998 as a Tiger Scout. Shaun earned 35 Merit Badges and was awarded the World Conservation and Freeze-Out Awards.  He attended summer camp at Decorah, Phillips and Lyle Boy Scout Camps. In addition, Shaun Maiter has served his troop in a variety of leadership posts including Senior Patrol Leader, Assistant Senior Patrol Leader, Patrol Leader, Assistant Patrol Leader, Troop Guide, Librarian and Bugler. As a member of  the Venturing Crew, Shaun participated in memorable High Adventure trips climbing and trekking through the mountains of New Mexico at Philmont Scout Ranch and Explorer Base, crew canoeing and portaging through the Boundary Waters and hiking at Isle Royale.

Shaun’s Eagle Scout Project consisted of educating his troop and the public on the damage caused by invasive plants, organizing and leading a group of Scouts and volunteers to clear an area of Richard Bong State Recreation Area of the invasive species garlic mustard, and creating an informational pamphlet on garlic mustard to be posted and distributed at Richard Bong State Recreation Area.

State Rep. Samantha Kerkman and State Senator Bob Wirch presented Shaun with a state of Wisconsin commendation at the ceremony.
