A young man from Stryker has reached the pinnacle of achievement in the Boy Scouts. Hunter Clingaman, a member of Troop 79 in Stryker, is now an Eagle Scout. He received his award yesterday.
Hunter joined scouting ten years ago as a member of Stryker Cub Scout Pack 3079.
Hunter earned his way up to Life Scout. He was elected to the Order of the Arrow in 2008.
During his years in scouting, Hunter has participated in many community service projects such as the annual Scouting for Food drives and working with the village of Stryker on the Knight’s Landing project.
Hunter’s Eagle project, according to the Bryan Times, was the design and construction of a cement walkway around the flag pole at Knight’s Landing in Stryker. Two memorial markers also were installed as part of the project, one commemorating William J. Knight for whom the landing is named. The other marker is in honor of the Stryker Boy Scouts who have constructed their Eagle projects at Knight’s Landing.
Hunter is the son of Jamie and Dawn Clingaman of Stryker, and is a senior at Stryker High School. His future plans include Northwest State Community College where he plans to major in engineering.
