Eagle Scout Jonathan Snow

Jonathan Snow, a member of Boy Scout Troop 33, chartered at First Lutheran Church in DeKalb, was recently presented the Eagle Scout Award, the highest rank in the Boy Scouts of America.

Jonathan is the son of Robert and Pamela Snow of DeKalb. 

Jonathan joined Cub Scouts in 2002 with Cub Scout Pack 132, where he earned the Arrow of Light Award, the highest honor in the Cub Scout program. In 2007, he crossed over into Boy Scout Troop 33. 

He attended numerous campouts and activities in every season, highlighted by several summer camps at Camp Lowden in Oregon, Illinois. He experienced winter adventure while dog sledding and ice hiking along Lake Superior, plus a summer adventure canoeing in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area in Minnesota. 

Jonathan served in various leadership positions as a Scout. He earned 28 merit badges. He is a Brotherhood member of the Order of the Arrow, Scouting’s national honor society.

His Eagle Project involved renovating historic nameplates of World War II veterans who were members of First Lutheran Church. Using these restored nameplates, he supervised a crew of workers creating a large oak plaque for public display to commemorate their service.

Snow is a 2014 graduate of DeKalb High School. He will attend OralRoberts University in Oklahoma in the fall.
