Following in the footsteps of his father, eight uncles and three brothers, Hunter Hatch received the highest rank attainable in the Boy Scouting program, the Eagle Scout award.

Hatch is a part of Scouting Troop 7009 of Prescott, Arizona, and attends Sequoia Choice School as a high school senior.

Furthermore, he wishes to express gratitude to everyone, leaders and family alike, who assisted him, helping him along the path ultimately leading to this aspired honor.

Only 4 percent of young men who enter into the Boy Scouts of America attain the Eagle Scout award.
