Accolades continue to roll in for Warren County’s first female Eagle Scout, Hannah Bailey.
“I am feel very honored and humbled to receive the Adams Award because I know Eagles all across the Middle Tennessee Council have done many incredible projects for our communities,” said Bailey. “None of us should do our project looking for recognition, but it’s nice for others to see the impact these projects provide.”
The National Eagle Scout Association established the Glenn A. and Melinda W. Adams national Eagle Scout Service Project of the Year award (ESSPY) to recognize valuable service of an exceptional nature by an Eagle Scout candidate to a religious institution, a school, community or other entity through completion of an Eagle Scout project.
Bailey was selected to receive the 2021 Adams Award for Middle Tennessee.
Examples of projects that have been selected for the ESSPY include projects that have benefited underprivileged children, recognized veterans, been international in nature, and have required significant time and resources.
Bailey was among individuals who placed signs on trees along rivers in Warren County in 2018. They display four-digit codes. Her Eagle Scout Project sought to improve safety for river enthusiasts by placing informational kiosks to educate them about the importance of those signs they see along the rivers in Warren County and how those can be used during emergency situations.
The recipient of the national award is selected among regional recipients by a special selection committee of the National Eagle Scout Association. National recipients receive $2,500.
