Raymond Nicholson was an Eagle Scout of Byesville Troop 542. He passed away in 2013. Raymond’s family and friends wanted his spirit of Scouting to continue and started the Raymond Nicholson II Spirit of Scouting Eagle Scout Scholarship in 2014 to assist those Scouts with continuing education. Each year a Scholarship of $500 is given to an Eagle Scout of Muskingum Valley Council. We urge all Eagle Scouts who are planning on attending College or Technical training in the 2015 year to apply.
