How These Triplets Landed Eagle Scout at Fourteen

trip[1]A Scout reaching the Eagle rank at 14 years old isn’t too common. Triplets taking flight as Eagle Scouts at 14 is something you might only hear about once in a lifetime. Here’s that chance.

Identical triplets Kaleb, Malek and Zalen B. of the Central Florida Council earned the Eagle Scout rank at the beginning of July. They’ll receive their Eagle Scout awards tomorrow, and the city of Melbourne is recongizing them Tuesday during a council meeting (including a visit from the city mayor, their mom says).

As for their Eagle Scout projects, they kept them in the Scouting family. The triplets renovated their local Girl Scout troops’ Scout house in Melbourne, FL. The project took about three months and drew in fundraising support of $5,000 to cover supply costs.

And the Girl Scouts were grateful.

“The boys’ efforts easily saved us 15-20,000 dollars in repair and renovation costs,” Maryann Barry, CEO of Girl Scouts of Citrus, told Florida Today. “We are blessed to have Eagle Scout candidates, such as the … triplets, add needed features or complete needed renovations on our Girl Scout camp and program properties.”
