He is the son of Vaughn and Diane Bagley.

Only 5 percent of all Boy Scouts attain the highest rank of Eagle Scout.

To earn the Eagle Scout rank, a Boy Scout must fulfill requirements in the areas of leadership, service and outdoor skills.

Bagley earned all required badges, his favorite being archery.

For his Eagle project, he led 30 volunteers on a clean up effort around the church’s building in Anoka.

He took out trees and shrubs and planted new bushes.

Bagley joined Scouting when he was 12 years old.

He graduated from Coon Rapids High School in 2012 and will be attending Century College in the fall.

He plans on studying for a year and then taking a two-year break to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

According to Bagley, the Scouting program has taught him leadership skills and responsibility that will carry through to all other aspects of his life.
