This scout earns highest rank
Riley Close knows how to tie about a dozen different knots and gained a lot of other skills during his 13 years in scouting.
He earned the Eagle Scout designation this year and held his Court of Honor during July at the UW-River Falls amphitheater.
The Court is held because becoming an Eagle Scout is a big deal. Nationwide there were nearly 3 million Cub and Boy Scouts last year. Statistics say that only about 4% of those might make it to Eagle.
