Matanzas High School senior Rowan Curtis has become the first female Eagle Scout in Flagler County.
Rowan Curtis, 18, is a member of Scouts BSA Girls Troop 4281 in Palm Coast and earned Scouting’s highest rank of Eagle Scout in just three years. Curtis is the first female Eagle Scout in the Scout BSA Timuqua Scouting District.
Curtis will receive her Eagle Scout Award at 2 p.m. May 27 at Trinity Presbyterian Church on Florida Park Drive.
Curtis founded Troop 4281 in 2020 alongside Scoutmaster Ariel Naday-Curtis — Rowan Curtis’ mother — and two other girls, according to a press release from the troop.
One of the last steps to becoming an Eagle Scout is to complete a service project helpful to the troops your community. Curtis decided to renovate a building at the group camp site at Haw Creek preserve at Russell Landing, the press release said.
“Rowan worked incredibly hard to prove to herself that she could do anything she set her mind to,” Naday-Curtis said. “I am so proud of how much she has grown as an individual and how much she influenced the girls of her troop to be strong leaders themselves.”
