Micah Grate, son of Myrle and Kathy Grate of Wetumpka, has earned the rank of Eagle Scout after completing his Eagle Board of Review on January 30. His Eagle project consisted of building three amphibious wheelchairs that benefit disabled campers at Children’s Harbor on Lake Martin.
Grate joined Wetumpka Boy Scout Troop 13 in 2014 and earned a total of twenty-two merit badges over his time in the troop. Leadership positions include serving as patrol leader of the Wolverines and troop guide. In 2017, he became an Ordeal member in the Order of the Arrow, the national honor society of Scouting, at Alibamu Lodge 179. One of the highlights of Grate’s Scouting adventures was exploring the Florida Keys at BSA Sea Base in Summerland Key, Florida.
Grate is an active member of Mulder Church in Wetumpka and has attended many youth mission trips. He is also a senior at Wetumpka High School, where he is a member of Tribal Council. After graduation, he will attend Troy University on a Scholars Award scholarship.
