Twins earn Eagle Scout designation


From Staff Reports 

  Bailee Merice Rias and Bazlee Martel Rias, 18-year-old twin brothers from McDonough, were promoted to Eagle Scout this month by Boy Scout Troop 712 chartered by Shiloh Baptist Church. It is the highest advancement award given by the Boy Scouts of America.

  Both are seniors at Luella High School and sons of Elderick Rias and Melissa English-Rias. They were recognized in a special ceremony at the church.

  Bailee is a member of the HOSA-Future Health Professionals Association and an intern with Henry County Fire Department in Hampton. He built a trash can enclosure in the Rose Garden Cemetery in McDonough. He has served as Assistant Senior Patrol Leader and Den Chief.

  Bazlee is a member of the Future Educators Association of Georgia, runner-up in the 2014 FEA Impromptu Speaking Competition and an intern at Rocky Creek Elementary School. He built a split rail fence in the Rose Garden Cemetery. He has served as Senior Patrol Leader, Quartermaster, and Den Chief.

  Approximately 2 percent of all boys who enter scouting will achieve the rank of Eagle. Smith and Turner join other outstanding American citizens who have become Eagle Scouts, among them former President Gerald R. Ford, Jr., astronaut Neil A. Armstrong, cinematographer Steven Spielberg, and the former head of the F.B.I., William Sessions.
