Bryce Moore is just 14 years old but already he has attained more as a Boy Scout then most boys 3 to 4 years older then him! And today? He is just one project away from the coveted Eagle Scout Badge. He’s here at Royce Hurst Humane society building a little walk-about park for dogs and their potential owners. Complete with a pergola ( a shaded walkway ) , a doggie water fountain and even a bright red faux Fire Hydrant …well it’s a real hydrant, donated by a local water company…there’s just no water in it. I’m sure the dogs will appreciate the gesture.
Bryce started his scouting journey at the tender age of 6 as a Tiger Scout and has spent the last 8 years in what can be truly called a remarkable series of accomplishments on his way to this final project to obtain the top spot in Scouting. From President Ford to Harrison Ford to Steven Spielberg and 11 of the 12 astronauts who walked on the moon …they all were in the Scouts. Not bad company for the young Bryce Moore.
At just 14 Bryce has spent his summers a Scout camp, his weekend earning the more than 50 badges he carries on his sash and even now mentors young scouts as a Den leader. An adult in a boy’s body, Bryce has leaned the value of Scouting and giving back to the community. The only son of two very proud parents…Bryce has plans to head to the Naval Academy and become a Marine Officer, following in his father’s footsteps. But today?...Bryce is swinging a hammer on the quiet back street of the Humane society…the muffled sound of barking dogs and the laughter of friends and family as I do this interview. Shy, but forthcoming and well spoken. It’s still hard to believe I’m interviewing a young man who just left 13 years –old. Mom gets emotional when I talk about her son…she realizes she only has a few years with this very talented fella before he becomes a man. Dad proud of this young man in the brown and tans of the uniform ….side by side his son as the construction continues. Getting an Eagle Scout designation is a monumental feat …you have to enlist local business and count on their good and giving nature…but that’s what it’s all about…Giving back to your community. Because long after Bryce is headed off to the military, this little dog park here in front of Royce Hurst Humane Society will be giving …a little drink and some shade to a potential owner a canine looking for a little love.
