Two Scouts recently received Eagle Scout awards, the Boy Scouts’ top rank.

William Roberts, 18, a senior at Gen. H.H. Arnold High School in Wiesbaden, Germany, received his award Tuesday.

Will, son of Russ and Liz Roberts, is a member of Troop 15 in Wiesbaden and has been in scouting for 12 years.

His Eagle project was to obtain and deliver needed aid and materials to the Church of Christ in the Seychelles Islands, a group of islands off the east coast of Africa. He organized fund-raisers and then purchased more than $1,300 worth of books and maps, which he helped hand-carry in summer 2001.

Robert W. Sharrah, 18, a junior at Ramstein American High School, received his award in March during a ceremony at Ramstein Air Force Base.

Robert, son of Don and Jeanne Sharrah, is a member of Troop 12 in Ramstein. He has been a Scout for seven years.

His project involved a free child-safety seat inspection in September at the Vogelweh shopping center. More than 100 car seats were examined, and many participants were given free seats donated by the Army and Air Force Exchange Service and other organizations.
