John Curtis Frank, 16, a junior at Kaiserslautern High School in Germany, recently received his Eagle Scout award, scouting’s highest honor.

To become an Eagle, a scout must meet requirements in leadership, service and outdoor skills, and complete a community project.

John, son of Ted and Cynthia Frank, is a member of Troop 69 in Vogelweh and has been involved in scouting for 10 years. He received his award Nov. 1 at the Landstuhl Learning Center.

His project involved refurbishing the fencing and dugouts at Pulaski ball field at Pulaski Barracks in Kaiserslautern. It included cleaning, patching and painting the dugouts, replacing dugout and backstop fencing and spreading gravel around the dugout entrance.
