Press Release –

Mason Keith, age 15, has earned the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest rank within the Boy Scouts of America program. He is a member of Troop 224, chartered to Elizabeth Lee Methodist Church in Chickamauga, GA, under the direction of current Scoutmaster, Don Gregg. 

Mason demonstrated leadership to others in a service project that benefitted a local community agency. 

He and his helpers built and installed a wooden storage box for children’s toys, and two wooden bench seats to be placed on the screened porch and outdoor sitting area at the Northwest Georgia Family Crisis Center.  They also added signage to the security entrance gates at the Center. 

Northwest Georgia Family Crisis Center provides emergency services for victims of family violence as well as outreach services including support groups and referrals for individual counseling. 


Mason has fond memories of scouting.  His favorite is when he attended the Klondike Derby at Skymont Scout Reservation last year.  He said it was fun building the sled and, “I enjoyed all the events in the rain and mud!”  Mason has said that Scouting can be challenging, but it is always rewarding after you overcome the challenge.    

The Cherokee Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America sends our warmest congratulations to Mason on achieving the rank of Eagle Scout.  We know that this accomplishment took a great deal of time and effort on his part.  

The Council includes 11 counties in Southeast Tennessee and Northwest Georgia.

We serve 5,000 youth and family members who annually contribute more than 20,000 community service hours. To learn more about Scouting, please call 423-892-8323 or visit us online at
