St. Thomas is proud to salute Ben Lauckner ‘22 for earning the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout, the highest achievement in the Boy Scouts of America (BSA).

Lauckner continues the thriving legacy of Eagle scholars who have reached this milestone accomplishment that is richly recognized throughout the United States.  Since the BSA inception in 1911, only four percent of scouts have earned this honor after a lengthy review process.

Lauckner achieved his distinction through Troop 1332 and the Charterwood Municipal Utility District. For his significant service project, he constructed portable crosses for St. Thomas Campus Ministry that are utilized for retreats and the Stations of the Cross during the Lenten season.

Lauckner has served various leadership positions within Troops 1332 while obtaining 29 merit badges and the Bronze Palm. He’s a member of the Order of the Arrow and has served consecutive summers at Bovay Scout Ranch in Navasota in a variety of command positions, including assistant senior patrol leader. His efforts were centered on experiential learning and personal growth achieved through participating in a unit program.

Lauckner’s collective scouting successes are a testament to a deep dedication to the BSA values of character, citizenship, community service, and allegiance to the purpose and goals of their respective troops – all consistent with the Basilian credo of Teach Me Goodness, Discipline and Knowledge. Lauckner plans to attend either Texas A&M University, West Texas A&M in Canyon, or Sam Houston State University.
