It was a day to celebrate an achievement. For the first time in 10 years, three young men from the Colusa Boy Scout Troop 5 received their Eagle Scout designations and badges Sunday, January 26th at the Colusa Scout Cabin.

Scoutmaster Amy Gerrard presented the scouts with their new honor.

Nicholas Moresco, Branden Woodring, and Gavin Gerrard, longtime members of Boy Scout Troop 5 were honored in an Eagle Scout Court of Honor Ceremony.
Acquiring the organizations highest rank, the Eagle Scouts Award, it is a moment worth of celebration.

For any Scout, reaching Eagle Scout is a daunting journey that takes dedication, perseverance and leadership. A Scout must progress through the ranks of Tenderfoot, Second Class,

First Class, Star and Life, each with its own time, experience and leadership requirements.

A significant portion of the Eagle rank requirements is for the scout to perform a service project, benefiting the community, a school or religious institution.

Nicholas Moresco, 18, a Colusa High School Senior and is the son of Jeff and Gina Moresco. Moresco participated in a beautification project at Egling Middle School in Colusa. He installed ground cloth, lawn edging, 40 shrubs and wood bark around the main walkway entering the school. Moresco is active in the ESA, CSF, FFA and FBLA.

Branden Woodring, 17, a Colusa High School Senior, and is the son of Chad Woodring and Lindie Hulbert. Woodring’s project benefited the City of Colusa by placing six dog waste bag dispensers throughout the Colusa Community Parks. Woodring also holds the State Farmer FFA award and is involved in Golf, OLL Lector, CSF, and the Colusa Stagehands.

Gavin Gerrard, 18, a Colusa High School Senior, and is the son of Amy Gerrard, and Rafael Garcia. Gerrard’s service project benefited Egling Middle School in Colusa where he repainted the boundary lines on both sides of the playground; in addition, he repainted the United States map outside the fourth grade classrooms.

In just a few years, Moresco, Woodring, and Gerrard have undergone a miraculous transformation—from someone who has struggled to memorize the Oath and Law to someone who lives the words, and from someone who needed to be led to someone who can lead others.

With their Eagle projects completed, and their merit badges earned, the scouts accepted their honor and announced the oath of the Eagle Scout Promise.

The Eagle Scouts presented their parents with an Eagle lapel pin as a symbol of their devotion.

Colusa City Mayor, Greg Ponciano and Colusa County Office of Education Board Member, Gary Teragawa presented awards to the scouts.

The Colusa Lions Club supplied the ceremony with a Tri-Tip dinner.

The Eagle Scout recipients would like to thank the following individuals and businesses for helping contribute to their individual projects: Daives Oil Co., Superior Tire Service,

Griff’s Feed & Seed, Ed Hulbert, Colusa Industrial Properties, the City of Colusa, Colusa Lions Club, George Hulbert, Pat Kittle, A.R.C., Redding Oil, Fire Arms Services, Kelleher Paint, Davison Drugs, and Premier Mushrooms.

The Colusa Troop 5 would like to thank all of the Parent Volunteers for their help and dedication in helping the youth become Eagle Scouts.
