All six brothers in the Glanzer family have achieved the rank of Eagle Scout.
The youngest attained scouting’s top level last Saturday during a Court of Honor ceremony.
“We are all proud of them,” said Keith Glanzer, father of the boys from Spokane’s North Side.
Peter Glanzer, 18, stood before family and members of Troop 121 to receive his Eagle medallion inside the chapel of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 2112 W. Francis Ave.
“It was pretty awesome to have all the years of hard work and dedication pay off,” Peter said.
Being the last of the six to become an Eagle, he acknowledged that he faced family pressure.
“If I didn’t get it they would not let me forget,” said the 2014 graduate of Shadle Park High School, where all of the brothers went to school.
For his required community service project, Peter organized volunteers to build the roof of a log picnic shelter in the ORV section of Riverside State Park.
Peter is currently in the Salt Lake City area preparing for his mission in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The troop is based at the Glanzers’ LDS church on the North Side.
Family members gathered earlier this week at the family home on North Fairmount Place to talk about Scouting and the brothers’ achievements. Four of the Eagles joined the conversation over the Web.
They told how Scouting became the family’s main activity and served as a positive venue for lower-cost vacations when the children were growing up and family finances were tight. Read more
