Local student achieves rank of Eagle Scout

A local student recently achieved the rank of Eagle Scout.

As part of his Eagle Scout project, Colby Scott Hamilton, a member of Troop 391 at White Hall, built and replaced eight benches around two fire rings at Camp Taloha. He also built, painted and placed a camp regulations sign to replace the previous sign that had fallen into disrepair.

Colby is the son of Steven and Vikki Hamilton of Pine Bluff and is a senior at Pine Bluff High School. He plans to attend the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, where he will pursue studies in computer sciences with a gaming option.
