Daniel Kerns was installed as Troop 11’s 70th Eagle Scout on Nov. 13. He is the son of Dan and Barb Kerns, has two older sisters and is a senior at Notre Dame High School. His Eagle project was landscaping and painting a sign at St. Mark’s Catholic Church as well as adding bushes around the parking. The leadership of Troop 11 has consistently worked with their boys to advance in the scouting programs putting in many hours with them. Troop 11 scouts thank everyone who bought wreathes and butter braids that help with fundraising.
