Damon J. Potter, an 18-year-old senior at Killeen High School, earned the rank of Eagle Scout on March 2.
For his project, Potter collected about 350 pounds of goods, including clothing, toiletries, office supplies and other nonperishables, for the In Triumph Shelter in Florence.
He began scouting at age 8 in Colorado Springs, Colo., and is now a member of Troop 224 in Copperas Cove with Scout Leader John Oster. Potter’s parents are Lt. Col. Joshua Potter, commander of the 81st Civil Affairs Battalion, 85th Civil Affairs Brigade, and Tracey Potter.
Potter will attend Texas A&M University in the fall.
