Santa Clarita resident Kevin R. Rodgers was awarded the rank of Eagle Scout during a Court of Honor held on June 26 at The Master's College.

Eagle Scout is the highest and most coveted award from Boy Scouts of America and is the culmination of years of work on merit badges, community service and scout leadership.

Rodgers, who will be sophomore at American University in Washington, D.C., this fall, was presented his award by his parents, Santa Clarita residents Steve and Beth Rodgers, as well as assistant scoutmasters Henry Mowry and Jim Beydler, both Eagle Scouts.

Steve Rodgers has been his son's Troop 2 scoutmaster for three years.

For his Eagle Scout project, Kevin Rodgers designed and built a shade shelter at Vasquez Rocks.

The shelter, which is now used by visitors to the wilderness area, was assembled under his direction by eight adult leaders and 44 individual scouts.

The project took 330 combined man-hours to complete.

At the Court of Honor, Rodgers received written commendations from Santa Clarita Mayor Laurene Weste and Assemblyman Cameron Smyth.

Rodgers is currently working as a summer intern in Smyth's office.
