Eagle Scout Award
Maiden resident Nolan Reese Rudisill (pictured left) was recognized in March during a Court of Honor ceremony at Family Life Center of Concordia Lutheran Church in Conover for receiving his Eagle Scout Award in November. Rudisill, a member of Boy Scout Troop 383, sponsored by Concordia and under the direction of Scout Master Jeff Kay, renovated the volleyball court at Union Street Park in Maiden as his Eagle Scout project. The renovation included installing a court drain, realigning the court and resurfacing it with fresh sand. He also created a planting bed around the park sign.
While in Boy Scouts, Rudisill has earned 29 merit badges, the God & Family Award, and the God & Country Award. The Piedmont Council asked him to attend the Boy Scouts of America National Jamboree in 2010 to celebrate 100 years of scouting. Rudisill hiked over 80 miles with his troop at Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, N.M.
Rudisill is the son of Steve and Beth Rudisill of Maiden, the grandson of Joe and Mary Rudisill of Catawba, and Fred and Barbara Poovey of Maiden. The Maiden High School senior will graduate Magna Cum Laude next month and plans to attend North Carolina State University in the fall to pursue a degree in forestry management.
