Matthew Solid

Matthew Solid, Merrifield, recently earned his Eagle Scout award before his 18th birthday. His Eagle Scout Court of Honor was held in December. Solid has been in Scouts since he was in third grade. His Eagle Scout project was building two sets of horseshoe pits at Mission Park. Solid graduated from Brainerd High School and is now attending Central Lakes College.

State Rep. John Ward was able to make it to the ceremony and awarded Solid with a plaque from the state. Jerry Speedling, the supervisor of Mission Township Park, also attended.
