Scouts Honors: Austin Kurtti, Aaron Kurtti

Austin Kurtti, age 17, and Aaron Kurtti, age 16, have earned the rank of Eagle Scout.

They are the sons of Dean and Brenda Kurtti, Maple Grove, Minn., and grandsons of Phyllis and the late Elton McLeod, Detroit Lakes, Minn., and Thomas and Louise Kurtti, Fargo.

Both are members of Boy Scout Troop 531 in Maple Grove.

Austin’s Eagle Scout project was building and installing four wood duck and four bluebird nesting boxes around the wetlands at Lord of Life Lutheran Church in Maple Grove. He also wrote a book for Karing Kingdom Preschool to use as a learning guide about the nesting boxes.

Aaron’s Eagle Scout project was building and installing two planter benches for the playground at Lord of Life Lutheran Church.
