The Phoenix Patrol used the project towards their second National Honor Patrol Award this summer. The award is the most prestigious patrol award in Boy Scouts and is awarded to patrols that go above and beyond their usual duties to make the best patrol possible.

The award takes three months to complete and requires the patrol to hold patrol meetings, wear their uniforms correctly, participate in outdoor activities and complete service projects, among other things.

Phoenix Patrol Leader Matthew Yerry will return to the site to install the landscaping around the statue as his Eagle Scout project.
