November 7, 2016 (El Cajon) - The Eagle Court of Honor ceremony for new Eagle Scout Alexander Bryan Mast of Boy Scout Troop 320 was held on Nov. 5 at the First Presbyterian Church of El Cajon. Family and friends, El Cajon City Councilman Bob McClellan and a representative from State Senator Joel Anderson’s office joined Scouts at the celebration at 500 Farragut Circle. A reception followed. The First Presbyterian Church has sponsored three Scout 320 units.
Mast, 18, is the son of Will and Mila Mast of El Cajon. The new Eagle Scout’s sister, Scout Venture Crew 320 member Linnea Mast, and brother, Cub Scout 320 member Larry Mast, participated in the honor court.
A flag that flew over the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., family gifts and Certificates of Recognition from the El Cajon City Council, San Diego County Supervisors, State Senator Joel Anderson and U.S. Congressman Duncan D. Hunter were received by Mast.
Among many Eagle requirements, a Boy Scout must complete an approved leadership project as a service to the community. With the help of others, Mast built a pergola for people to rest in the shade at the Circle Community Garden near the church.
