Rossi Wrenn, a member of scout troop 355 in Marysville, is the area’s newest Eagle Scout.
He is currently a sophomore at Marysville Early College High School, studying in the engineering pathway.
He is driven by an interest in military aviation. Many visits to the United States Air Force Museum at Wright-Patterson in Dayton and a recent trip to the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs prompted his pursuit to become a candidate for Air Force Academy selection.
This interest also spilled over into his Eagle Project.
His project involved improvements to the National Air Defense Museum in Bellefontaine, the site of the former 664th SC&W/Radar Squadron, currently on the grounds of the Ohio Hi-Point Career Center. Wrenn constructed and installed signs for the museum so it can be better identified and set a flag pole in place at the facility.
He has put in many hours of local community service with scouting, but noted that his Eagle Project will forever link his name to the 664th AC&W Museum, as wall as the Hi-Point campus.
His last scouting trip took him to Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico for an event called Cavalcade in which he went on horseback into the mountains for eight days. He recently became a certified SCUBA diver in preparation for a Boy Scout trip to Sea Base in the Florida Keys in June of 2021.
Wrenn is also currently a black belt candidate at The Center for Traditional Martial Arts in Zanesfield.
He is the son of Rebecca Burton of Raymond and Sean Wrenn of West Mansfield.
