2 Edmond Scouts achieve rank of Eagle Scout

EDMOND — John Shelden and Wilbert Hundl III have achieved the rank of Eagle Scout.

Shelden is a junior at Edmond North High School. He is 17 and is a member of Troop 331 in Eagle District. His parents are Susan Bennett and David Shelden. Shelden has been a member of Troop 331 at St. Monica Catholic Church since joining Cub Scouts as a Tiger Cub. He earned the rank of Eagle on Sept. 26.

Shelden’s Eagle Project involved redesigning a section of the multi-use trail at Lake Arcadia. The section of trail that was eroded has been moved and has a drainage system that will ensure erosion control in the future.

Shelden is a member of the Order of the Arrow. He has earned 27 merit badges and served in numerous leadership positions in the troop. He has always enjoyed the troop’s High Adventure activities such as attending Philmont Scout Ranch, the Boundary Waters in Minnesota and mountain climbing in Colorado.

Wilbert Hundl III is a freshman at Edmond North High School, and a member of Troop 331 in Eagle District. He is the son of Paula and Wilbert Hundl II. Hundl earned the highest rank in scouting in less than three and a half years. He obtained his Eagle rank on Aug. 29.

Hundl’s Eagle Service Project was revitalizing a courtyard at Sunset Elementary School. This project will allow for safe and comfortable outdoor learning opportunites for students at the school. Hundl is a member of Order of the Arrow. He has earned 22 merit badges.

In addition to holding the position of senior patrol leader, Hundl has served in many positions of leadership within the troop. He enjoys attending monthly camping adventures and has attended BSA summer camps in Oklahoma, New Mexico and Colorado.

  • Dr. Fielding’s variance denied by close vote

    Reverse-angle parking will continue at the 13 N. University Drive office of Dr. Brad Fielding. The Edmond City Council rejected a variance request by the local optometrist to end the city’s pilot project in front of his medical facility.
    Councilman Nick Massey and Councilwoman Victoria Caldwell supported Fielding’s variance request that was dismissed in a 3-2 vote.
    Four parking lines were striped late last year at Fielding’s business after the city opened new bicycle lanes along University. The city cites the safety for bicyclists and motorists who traditionally depart while backing into traffic as the main reasons for introducing reverse-angle parking.
