Goeden reaches Eagle Scout rank in Troop 54

Jonathan Goeden, Troop 54's newest Eagle Scout, was the driving force behind a new swing set for kids at Tapley Park in Wadena.

Jonathan Goeden is Troop 54's newest Eagle Scout.

The 15-year-old sophomore executed a project at Tapley Park this summer from start to finish which involved the construction of a swing set, funded by the city of Wadena.

Goeden put 208 hours into the project, which involved coming up with the idea, selling it to the city council, then participating in the construction of the set and the landscaping around it in Tapley Park with the help of his fellow scouts and friends.

Goeden, who has 31 merit badges, is one of just three Eagle scouts in Troop 54. Kyle Moench and Joey Pate have also reached Eagle rank in Troop 54.

Jonathan is the son of Gregg and Joan Goeden.
