Travis Senft of Boy Troop 381 in Wheatland has earned the rank of Eagle Scout.

Travis started Scouting as a Cub Scout in the first grade, and over the past 10 years was able to earn over 40 merit badges and earn the rack of Eagle Scout.

Said Senft:

Scouting has taught me countless life lessons and given me incredible opportunities.  As I worked on my Eagle Scout Project, I am excited to give to the community that has given me so much. As I consider my future goals I look back on my scouting career and how it has prepared me for future challenges and opportunities. These experiences helped me better understand the definition of leadership. By facing the challenges that were present as a Scout, I have learned that anything can happen and I always have to be prepared for what lies ahead. I plan in the future to become a pilot. I am currently taking flight lessons. I am hopeful that I can complete my Private Pilot licenses before I graduate High School. Becoming a pilot also will help me learn how to make good decisions. As a pilot you need to understand situations and make decisions based on the information you have available to you. You’ll also quickly understand your limits, and what it takes to improve them. If flying wasn’t challenging, it wouldn’t be nearly as rewarding. I feel my boy scout experiences will help me in future in coming a professional pilot.

Travis’s Eagle Scout project is a wooden walking bridge over a small creek in KD Park. This bridge will help people have a safe and fun experience while walking the trails at KD Park.

Added Senft:

This project is not the end to my scouting career, but it is a test in which I use the knowledge and skills that I have learned throughout my years of Scouting to provide leadership and guidance to my peers. Becoming an Eagle Scout will be the start of a new chapter in my life, one in which the values I have developed will lead me in being the best person that I can be. The men and women leaders my Troop have been inspirational in their support and help through my Scouting career.  I plan to stay with the Troop as a leader to help as much as I am able to pass my knowledge on to younger scouts in the hope that they will find the journey to Eagle as rewarding as I have.”
