Williford Installs Life Saving Device In Church For Eagle Scout Project

An Eagle Scout Court of Honor was held on March 31st for Jamie Glenn Williford of Boy Scout Troop 33.

For his Eagle Scout project, Jamie installed an automated external defibrillator (AED) which is a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses life-threatening cardiac arrest. Jamie then trained the entire congregation at Oakland Presbyterian Church on not only how to use the device but taught them CPR and First Aid classes as well.

Jamie was presented with an Eagle Scout Good Citizenship Award during his ceremony.

Jamie is currently a sophomore at Cleveland High School and plans to pursue an Engineering Degree in College. He is a member of Cleveland’s Golf Team, a member of the Student Council, and the founder of First Priority, a heavily attended Christian group within Cleveland High School.

Jamie is the son of Ed and Deborah Williford of Clayton. He is from a family of Eagle Scouts. His brother Josh Williford earned his Eagle Scout in 2017, and his father earned his Eagle Scout in 1987.
