Area scouts were recognized for their commitment to better the community.
The Whispering Pines District of the Boy Scouts of America held a dinner in Canfield on Sunday for all the local Eagle Scout Award recipients.
Thirty-four scouts became Eagle Scouts last year, the highest award one can earn. Each one has to complete a project.
One Boy Scout built a wildlife habitat in Boardman.
“Earning the Eagle Award is relatively difficult. It takes a lot of dedication and commitment. It takes a lot of time on the scout’s behalf,” said Chris Leymarae of Boardman.
All of the Eagle Scouts honored tonight are from Mahoning County.
