Andrew “A.J.” Fisher, son of Scott and Christine Fisher, has earned the rank of Eagle Scout.
Fisher is a member of Boy Scout Troop 634 at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in Marysville. He had his Court of Honor ceremony in late July.
Fisher began his scouting career as a Bobcat in Cub Scout Pack 634. From there he earned his Arrow of Light and was nominated for the Order of the Arrow, which is a distinguished honor in Boy Scouts. He is also a member of the National Eagle Scout Association.
For his Eagle Scout project, he wanted it to be something of importance and a true connection for him. He, along with Honda of America, installed a robotic arm in front of Marysville Early College High School. This was important to Fisher since he will be a member of the first graduating class from the school later this school year.
Fisher has held many leadership roles within his troop, including assistant patrol leader, webmaster and librarian. He was also a master salesman for the cub scout and boy scout troops, selling more than $13,000 worth of popcorn to raise money for the troop and fund his own scout account to pay for campouts and activities.
He has attended Day Camp every year as a Cub Scout and summer camp as a Boy Scout. Every month his troop would go on camping trips where the boys must demonstrate what they have learned in their troop. He has even survived the Klondike Campouts where the troop camps out in tents, even when the temperatures reach below zero.
Fisher, a senior, is a member of the varsity boys golf team, the Robotics 3484 Short Circuit Team and is a member of National Honor Society.
After high school, He plans on attending a university where he wants to major in mechanical engineering.
Fisher presented his former Scoutmaster Jim Palmer, Assistant Scoutmaster Joe Jasper and Scout mom Mrs. Blue with mentor pins for their leadership skills.
