The Eagle Scout award is the highest rank in the Boy Scouts, and it marks the completion of a service project and earning at least 21 merit badges. Jeremy is the son of Ellen Oaks and Vern Oaks of Superior.
Jeremy began scouting while a student at Great Lakes Elementary, and finishes his scouting career as he graduates from Superior High School. He has applied himself in his classes and extracurricular activities as well as scouting.
As a student in the Superior school district, his accomplishments include an academic letter, an advanced placement scholar designation and an achievement certificate from the business department leadership.
Some of the extracurricular activities that Jeremy was involved in included being a member of the student council for four years, serving as secretary for the council and serving as student representative to the school board. He was also president of the teenage Republican Club. Jeremy was a member of the Future Business Leaders of America and advanced to national completion in his junior and senior years.
Jeremy’s Eagle Scout project was repair and restoration work at the St. Francis Cemetery in Superior.
To complete his project, he and volunteers cleaned, straightened and rebuilt monuments along with refurbishing the cross that was dilapidated and leaning.
In the fall, Jeremy will attend the University of Wisconsin-Superior. He intends to pursue a degree in computer science.
