CLAYTON – When a young person becomes a Boy Scout there is within them, something that is called the Spirit of Scouting. Kambron Jawaun Whitaker has that spirit. Kambron was presented with the Marine Corps League Good Citizenship Award by Past Detachment Commandant Bo Durham during his Eagle Scout Court of Honor ceremony February 27th at Oakland Presbyterian Church.

Kambron is the son of Alfred and Lacreshia Whitaker. Kambrok graduated a semester early from Corinth Holders High School, where he was a running back on the Varsity Football team. Kambron is currently attending Methodist University in Fayetteville pursuing a degree in sports medicine.

Kambron’s journey to earning his Eagle Scout took him through five different councils in five states starting with Troop 929 in Chesterton, Indiana, Troop 65 in Gonzales, Louisiana, Troop 46 in Andalusia, Alabama, Troop 125 in Middletown, Delaware and finally joining Troop 33 OPC at age 16 ending in Tuscarora Council NC.

Kambron received not one but two Golden Eagle Good Turn coins. Since joining Troop 33, he served twice as a Patrol Leader, Troop Historian, and Quartermaster.

His Eagle Project was building a picnic table and two garden boxes for the residents of Smithfield Rescue Mission’s Women and Children’s Shelter. Although, not part of his project, when he arrived and presented his completed projects, Kambron cleaned up the entire playground area in order to make it more functional.

Kambron wants to become a business owner and give back to younger kids what Scouting has given to him and his younger sister a WEBELOS at Pack 422.
