An Eagle Scout Ceremony was held Saturday at Oakland Presbyterian Church for Eagle Scout Nathaniel Charles Mayfield from Boy Scout Troop 33 of Clayton.
In 2017, Nate relocated from Boy Scout Troop 62 of Tifton, Georgia to Scout Troop 33.
For his Eagle Scout project Nate built a sign, prayer benches and did a landscaping overhaul at Justice Cemetery in Holly Springs for visitors to have a place for seating while visiting the graves of their loved ones.
He is a senior at West Johnson High School, a member of the Rugby Team and also coaches youth wrestling.
Nate is a current recipient of an Army ROTC Scholarship and will be attending the Virginia Military Institute (VMI) next year where he plans to enroll in International Studies. His goal is to become an Aviation Officer in the United States Army.
During his Eagle Scout Court of Honor, Nate was presented with an Eagle Scout Good Citizenship Award from Eagle Scout Coordinator Lewis W. Rice III on behalf of the Johnston County Marine Corps League (JCMCL) Carry-On Detachment 1236 (left), and from the Marine Corps League Department of North Carolina Assistant Eagle Scout Coordinator Devell “Bull” Durham Jr. (right).
Nate is the son of Joshua and Heather Mayfield of Four Oaks.
