Lodi boys earn Eagle Scout badge, honored at ceremony

LODI, Wis. — Sunday was a special day for four young men from Lodi.

Noah Houdek, Walter Beld, Ben Schultz and Connor Pecard received their Eagle Scout badge during a special court of honor. The four have been scouts together in Troop 113 since the first grade.

“I joined because my friends were in it,” Schultz said. “But what made me stay is the leadership aspect and the lessons that scouting has taught me.”

Together, the group has completed over 1,000 volunteer service hours and earned 148 merit badges.
