CLEARWATER – The Sons of the American Revolution Scholarship Program recognizes the outstanding accomplishments of Eagle Scouts at the chapter, state and national levels.
The group recently recognized Eagle Scout Andrew James Case of Troop 26 in Palm Harbor. Compatriot Art Hayes, the Clearwater Chapter Eagle Scout Coordinator, presented Case with $100, as well as his third place, state-level award for the Eagle Scout scholarship contest, for which he received a congratulatory letter from Charlie Day, State Chairman of the SAR Eagle Scout Scholarship Recognition Program. Case also received $250 from the Florida Society Sons of the American Revolution and $100 from SAR Ladies Auxiliary.
Case’s winning scholarship entry included an essay titled “The Battle of Camden,” that occurred in August 1780 in South Carolina during the Revolutionary War. Case’s ancestor, Michael Abraham Awalt Sr., was a private in the Rowan County, North Carolina militia and participated in this battle.
Case is the son of Richard and Pamela Case and is a senior at Palm Harbor University High.
