Boy Scouts of America Troop 432 member Andrew Pieringer, 17, celebrated his achievement with his family and friends Dec. 20 during his Eagle Scout Court of Honor at Lake Oswego Hunt on Iron Mountain Boulevard. To obtain the Eagle Scout rank, Pieringer had to complete a service project, a task created to offer scouts a chance to serve the community and to teach them leadership skills.

Pieringer’s project was to rebuild a set of stairs at Lake Oswego Hunt, a nearly 80-year-old organization that provides programs for horsemanship.

His father, Craig Pieringer, also became an Eagle Scout as a young man in New Jersey.
