McKENZIE — Richard Clay Wilson of McKenzie has earned his Eagle Scout Award, according to Boy Scout Troop 78 of McKenzie. This award is earned by only 4 percent of Scouts nationwide.

To earn the Eagle rank, a scout must attain 21 merit badges, demonstrate leadership, including successful planning, and complete a community service project.
