Hugh Stephens joined an elite group of young men recently when he received the rank of Eagle Scout during a Court of Honor ceremony at Lanier United Methodist Church. While only about 4 percent of those who enter the Boy Scouts nationwide earn the ranking, the sixth and final in the program, those percentages don’t apply to the Stephens household. For the local family, the percentage of young men becoming Eagle Scouts is 100.
