Auburn's Kyle Harris recently earned his Eagle Scout, the highest rank attainable in the Boy Scouting program of the Boy Scouts of America.

Harris, son of Rob and Joyce Harris, officially was awarded the rank in May and ceremoniously honored in late July.

For his Eagle Scout community project, Harris and more than 40 volunteers cleaned, repaired and rebuilt more than a half-mile of trail at Green River Community College.

Harris, who graduated in June from Auburn Mountainview High School with a 4.0 GPA, participated in the band and marching band programs during his prep career. He is studying mechanical engineering at George Fox University in Newberg, Ore.
