Boy scout volunteers leave legacy
The Beard family also includes three sons who are Eagle Scouts. In his 12 years as scoutmaster of Troop 45, Wayne Beard has served more than 200 scouts and their families. In the troop’s 90-year history, more than half the Eagle Scout awards have been earned during his tenure, with six Eagles awarded last year alone. The Beards both have been awarded the Silver Beaver Award and been selected for the Vigil Honor, one of the highest ranks in Boy Scouts.
