Ethan Procajlo knew when he was 10 years old that he wanted to one day be an Eagle Scout. Never mind that he had just bridged from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts, the Tinley Park youth was passionate about scouting and inspired by the older boys who had taken on leadership roles.

“I’ve been scouting since first grade,” Procajlo said. “I loved it from the beginning. I loved the experiences that I got to have, the things I wouldn’t be able to do if I wasn’t in scouts.”
