From The Courier-Times on 11/24/21

Charlie Feren, the son of Timothy and Melissa Feren, of Timberlake, has earned the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout. Feren earned his Eagle Scout Rank as a member of Scouts BSA Troop 223, which is chartered by Helena United Methodist Church in Timberlake. He received his Eagle Scout Award in a Court of Honor conducted at Sunset Ridge Buffalo Farm, on Saturday, Oct. 2. John Hamlett, Feren’s former Scoutmaster presided over the ceremony.

Feren has been active in Scouting since second grade, when he joined Cub Scouting with Pack 223, as a Wolf. Under the direction of Cubmasters Fran Bradsher and Jim Davis, Feren advanced through the program to earn Cub Scouting’s highest award, The Arrow of Light. Charlie went on to join Scouts BSA Troop 223 on June 2, 2014.

Feren served faithfully, in leadership positions, as Patrol Leader and Senior Patrol Leader in Troop 223. On his way to Eagle, Charlie earned 28 merit badges. His Eagle Scout Project was to renovate the front porch of the American Legion Post 138 of Roxboro,. The renovation included replacing the existing columns, railings and benches on the front porch in order to make the front porch and entry way safer for our veterans that use the American Legion. During his time with Scouts BSA Troop 223, Feren participated in 59 different service projects totaling 94.5 hours. His Eagle Scout Project resulted in an additional 246 hours of community service.

Feren is an Ordeal Member of the Order of the Arrow, which is Scouting’s National Honor Society for campers.

Charlie is a 2021 graduate of Person High School and is currently enrolled at Piedmont Community College, working towards an Associate’s Degree in Applied Science from the Industrial System Technology Curriculum — Mechanical Skills/Engineering. He would like to pursue a career in Welding.
