Boy Scout Troop 832 of Timonium has reason to be proud. The troop has an entire Scout patrol whose members started their Boy Scout journey together and completed it together as Eagle Scouts. The six members of the Cobra patrol, Clayton Cuddington, Jonathon Dordai, Matthew Hall, Lucas Myers, Nicholas Myers, and Dominic Piedmont, have achieved the rank of Eagle Scout and are now starting new journeys as freshmen in college. Clayton, Jonathon, Matthew, Lucas, and Nicholas started in Cub Scouts and then bridged into the troop at the end of fifth grade. Dominic joined them in the troop that same year.

All six boys started out together in Boy Scouts in the same patrol. (Five of them started in Cub Scouts together.) And all six — the entire patrol — have achieved Eagle, a rarity in Scouting. to All six are from Timonium and they all went to Timonium Elementary .
Everyone is so proud of these young men. The entire Troop 832 family is very proud of what these Scouts have accomplished and wish them the very best as they begin their new journeys in life.
