Since joining Troop 1448, Chase has attained the 21 merit badges required for the Eagle Rank as well as 15 additional merit badges. He has been involved in scouting for eight years, has served as the troop assistant senior patrol leader, and was selected into the Order of the Arrow by his fellow scouts.
Chase is a senior at Ringgold High School, and the son of James (Jay) and Jennifer Ambrose of Donora. He is an avid outdoorsman and enjoys hunting and fishing. He is a member of the Charleroi Archery Club and Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD) competition shooting team.
For his Eagle Scout community improvement project, Chase improved the functionality and safety at a local archery range. He rebuilt the range from the ground up including new bale houses, safety fencing, and a flag pole. His project required over 500 hours of labor to complete.
A court of honor ceremony will take place at 1 p.m. Saturday, March 3, 2018 at the American Legion Post 212 in Donora.
Chase would like to thank family, friends, and Troop 1448 for their help in making his project a success. Special thanks to Lighthouse Electric and 84 Lumber for supplying materials.
