Troop 492B, founded in 2019, just had its first Eagle Scout pass his Board of Review on June 17th! Troop 492B, part of the White Oak District, is a small, but very active troop in Rockville, MD, and has earned JTE Gold every year since it started.
Michael Browning joined the BSA as the small troop was forming, and is a founding member. Michael’s Eagle Project was a renovation of his church’s outdoor sanctuary area. He ranked up to Eagle with 42 merit badges and numerous other awards. Michael’s BoR was just 10 days after his 14th birthday, so he has many more adventures planned for his scouting career. This week he is off at NYLT, and his troop – and their linked girls’ troop, 492G – will be heading off to Camp Olmstead at Goshen Scout Reservation at the end of July. He has already signed up for Jamboree 2023 – and is working hard to get as many of the rest of Troops 492 to go with him.
