Oklahoma City teen earns Eagle Scout award

OKLAHOMA CITY — Travis Wog, Oklahoma City, has earned his Eagle Scout Award, the highest honor a scout can receive from the Boy Scouts of America.

Wog is finishing his high school curriculum through homeschool. He is the son of Scott and Debbie Wog and has one older sister. His interests, other than scouting, are playing sports and computer aided drafting and design.

Wog started Cub Scouts in 2006 and then Scouting in 2009. He attends Scout Troop #185 sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Santa Fe in Moore.

After a scout has earned 21 merit badges certifying achievements in a variety of areas, every Eagle Scout is required to complete an Eagle project. Wog chose to organize an emergency preparedness fair for the local community.

After last year’s tornados, Wog realized how unprepared some people might be. His project became a way to help his family and community become more prepared for possible disasters.

“The best part of the project was when I stood back and thought to myself, ‘I got this to happen,’” Wog said.

After Wog finishes high school, he plans to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. At the conclusion of his mission, he will study mechanical engineering.
