St. Thomas is proud to salute Colin Wu ‘24 for earning the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout, the highest achievement in the Boy Scouts of America (BSA).
Wu continues the thriving legacy of Eagle scholars who have reached this milestone accomplishment that remains richly recognized throughout the United States.
Wu gained his distinction through Troop 549 and ChristChurch Presbyterian in Bellaire while receiving a robust 58 merit badges plus an impressive six Eagle palms. He has excelled in various preeminent roles including senior patrol leader, assistant senior patrol leader, patrol leader, assistant patrol leader, and den chef.
Wu completed his challenging service project, coordinating and hosting a baseball skills clinic for Neartown Little League in the historic Montrose neighborhoods. He partnered with St. Thomas and head coach Adam Massiatte, securing a number of teammates from Eagle Baseball to serve as volunteer coaches, and then organizing an equipment donation for the Neartown program.
Wu participated in an extensive array of extracurricular BSA activities the previous four summers – the Philmont Scout Ranch High Adventure in Cimarron, New Mexico in 2021, the Bear Creek Scout Camp west of Kerrville, Texas in 2020, the Buffalo Trail Scout Ranch in Midland in 2019, and Camp Parsons in Washington in 2018.
Wu’s exemplary scouting success is 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.
