Corvallis boy earns Eagle Scout honor
Ty Abernathy, a 13-year-old eighth-grade student at Cheldelin Middle School in Corvallis, was presented with an Eagle Scout award from the Boy Scouts of America at a Court of Honor held Nov. 22.
He is the son of Tad Abernathy and Amanda Abernathy. He is a member of Troop 162, sponsored by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The unit leader is Bob Carleski, and the committee chairman was Harry Reich, who presented the award.
Ty earned 23 merit badges, and attended Camp Baldwin and Camp Pioneer. He was senior patrol leader, president of Deacons Quorum and was a Pop Warner football team captain.
For his service project, Ty constructed an outdoor batting cage for the Crescent Valley High School baseball team. The cage is made up of eight 14-foot-tall, 150-pound metal poles. Rob Grause, Harry Reich and coach Ryan Stewart gave mentoring help. Ty and his six helpers put in 37 hours on the project.
