Davison earns Eagle Scout Award


Morgan Davison, of Verdigris, has earned the highest attainable rank in Boy Scouts — the Eagle Scout Award.
Eagle Scout requires years of dedication and hard work. Scouts must demonstrate proficiency in leadership, service and outdoor skills at multiple levels before achieving the Eagle rank.
Davison has been involved in scouting since age 6. A member of Troop 87, he is one of approximately four percent of all Boy Scouts who attain the Eagle Scout distinction.  
Davison was honored for his achievement in a ceremony at Verdigris United Methodist Church.  In addition to the 21 merit badges required for the Eagle rank, each scout must complete an extensive project that he plans, organizes, leads and manages before his 18th birthday.
For Davison’s project he chose to build a sidewalk that connected from an existing sidewalk to the curb so that the students at the Jim Anderson Early Childhood Center in Verdigris would not have to walk in the street to get to the building.  
Senior Patrol Leader and Patrol Leader are just a couple of the positions he has held within the troop.
Davison joins other outstanding American citizens who have become Eagle Scouts, among them former President Gerald R. Ford, Jr., astronaut Neil A. Armstrong, cinematographer Steven Speilberg, and the former director of the FBI, William Sessions.
Davison is a member of Stone Canyon Church of Christ in Owasso, a 2013 graduate of Verdigris High School and is presently a freshman at Harding University in Searcy, Ark. and a member of Delta Chi Delta.
Morgan is the son of Steven and Shari Davison of Verdigris. He is the grandson of Eldon and Wanda Turner of Verdigris.
