Just one month apart, cousins Nathan Padilla and Steven Cooper earned the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout. The boys are with Troop 728.

On July 18 Padilla was joined by family members and friends at his ceremony. Nate is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and has been actively involved with the Boy Scout program in the church.

His Eagle Scout project involved moving the flag pole from the side of the LDS church on Green Valley Road, to the front of the building so it could be seen by all. He is currently attending Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.

On Aug. 18 Cooper was awarded the rank of Eagle in the Boy Scouts of America, at a Court of Honor attended by many friends and family. Steve’s project was to make baby blankets, and gather medical supplies for the clinics and people of Zimbabwe.

Steve has been very active in the the BSA program in the church and is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He is also attending BYU.
