Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald
TOLEDO CHRONICLE - A West Liberty Boy Scout was recently recognized by the American Legion of Iowa as the State Boy Scout of the Year. Aaron Campbell, 18, was presented the award at the American Legion State Convention in Cedar Rapids on Saturday, July 17. Campbell is the son of Tom and Jane Campbell of West Liberty and the grandson of Gerry Campbell and the late Lyle Campbell of Toledo.

In addition to the award, Campbell received a $1000 scholarship from the American Legion of Iowa and an additional $1000 scholarship from the American Legion of Iowa Foundation.

Campbell completed his Eagle Scout project in 2009 at Wildcat Den State Park in Muscatine County. He coordinated the construction and placement of wildlife feeders near a wildlife viewing blind in the park to further enhance the wildlife viewing opportunities for the public using the area. Campbell also placed two bat houses in the park picnic area adjacent to the wildlife viewing area. In addition to his Eagle Scout project, Campbell also received the Pope Pius XII Religious Emblem in February, 2010 to qualify him for the award.

Campbell is a member of Troop 141 in West Liberty and a 2010 graduate of West Liberty High School. He has enrolled and will attend Cornell College in Mount Vernon this fall majoring in environmental science.
