LARGO – Joshua Thomas Luker, 18, son of Glenn and Elaine Luker of Largo will be awarded the rank of Eagle Scout on July 7.

He is a member of Boy Scout Troop 371, sponsored by Christ the King Lutheran Church in Largo. He joined the Scouts in first grade in 2002, joining Tiger Cub in Pack 371. Josh became a member of Troop 371 in sixth grade, and has been involved in Scouts for a total of 12 years.

During his time in Boy Scouts, Luker held the positions of historian, den chief, assistant senior patrol leader, and senior patrol leader. Luker is also a member of the Order of the Arrow and has earned a total of 28 merit badges.

Luker’s Eagle project was the design and construction of four benches for the entrances of St. Patrick Catholic Church in Largo. As a former student at St. Patrick Catholic School, Luker recognized the need to replace benches that were in disrepair, providing parishioners with safe, comfortable and maintenance-free seating outside the church. Each bench is large enough to comfortably seat three adults and is constructed from composite wood and weather-resistant cypress for longevity.

As a student at Seminole High School, Luker was a leading runner on both the varsity cross country and track teams from ninth through 12th grade. He competed in both the State Finals for Cross Country and Regional Finals for Track.

Luker also is an active member of his church community. He was an altar server at St. Jerome Catholic Church and St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Church from third through 12th grade.

Luker will be attending St. Petersburg College this fall. His goal is to earn his associate’s degree at St. Petersburg College then transfer to Florida State University for his bachelor’s degree.
