Glen Burnie High School sophomore Logan David Skinner was awarded Eagle rank Sept. 4 by the Four Rivers District Advancement Committee of Boy Scouts of America.
Son of Cassandra and Sean Skinner, and known as David to friends, he is the fourth and final male Eagle in his home – his brother Logan Fallon-Skinnerwas named Eagle in 2015 and Hunter Skinner made Eagle in 2017. In December, Logan’s cousin Alexander Terry, who lives with the Skinners, earned his Eagle rank. Cassandra is an Eagle coach for the Four Rivers District.
Logan’s sister Kyra is hopeful to break up the boys’ club and is the secretary for Venturing Crew 3006.
For his Eagle project entitled “A Place for Everyone”, Logan chose to serve those with accessibility limitations. He built wheelchair accessible picnic tables for the Country Club Estates pool. He was not deterred when his original project at Weems Creek Church was derailed by the expansion of the church’s fellowship hall.
Logan began his scouting journey as a Tiger with Pack 712 at Monsignor Slade Catholic School. He worked through the Cub ranks earning the Super Achiever award, the World Conservation award, NOVA award and the Arrow of Light – Cub Scouts’ highest rank.
Since bridging to Boy Scouts, Logan has called Troop 447, of Saint Philip Neri, his scouting home where he served as troop guide and earned 27 merit badges. Logan is a Brotherhood member of the Order of the Arrow – scouting’s honor society – and for the past two years he has served as his troop’s Order of the Arrow representative.
Logan’s favorite part of scouting is camping – especially at Sinoquipe Scout Reservation in the Laurel Highlands area of Fort Littleton, Pa. He has served as a camp aide for the past five years at Four Rivers’ day camp in Crownsville, including full-time during the summer.
At school, Logan enjoys working with the stage crew of the theater department. He assists with the school’s unified bocce team, and enjoys music and laughing with friends.
Now that he has completed his Scouting journey, Logan has started on a new path with the Young Marines at VFW Post 160. He hopes to continue to further dedicate his life to service after graduation by enlisting with the Marines. .
