THOMASVILLE -- Brookwood School seniors Emmett Miles ‘21 and Nathan Yokley ‘21 earned the designation of Eagle Scout this month, which is the highest achievable rank in the Boy Scouts of America program. To become an Eagle Scout, Boy Scouts must earn a certain number of badges and undergo a review process.
Before becoming an Eagle Scout, the boys each had to complete a service project that would have a positive impact on their community. Miles designed and built a new stage and audiovisual cabinet for the student building at First Presbyterian Church in Thomasville. Under the supervision and guidance from Ian Quinton, other scouts helped him complete the project.
Yokley refurbished an outdoor basketball court for the Francis F. Weston YMCA in Thomasville. With assistance from his parents, friends, and fellow scouts, the court has been restored to good condition and is ready for use.
Miles and Yokley join the prestigious ranks of the 27 Eagle Scouts that have graduated from Brookwood within the last five years.
Located in Thomasville, GA, Brookwood School is a private school for grades JK-12. Students benefit from a challenging academic program, fine and performing arts, competitive athletics, and a wide selection of extracurricular activities.
