The Eagle Scout rank is the highest rank attainable in the Boy Scouts of America.

At the October 19 Ascension Parish Council meeting, President Kenny Matassa recognized Garrett Joseph Tassin for achieving the rank of Eagle Scout. Tassin, a member of Troop 65 in Gonzales, led all those assembled in the pledge of Allegiance.

The Eagle Scout rank is the highest rank attainable in the Boy Scouts of America. The title of Eagle Scout is held for life, thus giving rise to the phrase "Once an Eagle, Always an Eagle.”
