Chase Lynn’s work on Heritage Church campus secures his Eagle rank

MADISON – Chase Benjamin Lynn gained interest in earning the rank of the Eagle Scout when his Scout leader explained the concept for the first time.

“He listed all of the virtues of becoming an Eagle Scout. This caught my attention, to say the least, and it started my work towards the rank,” Lynn said.

“My motivation to do the work was the tasks themselves; certain aspects of the work required large amounts of time camping, which I thoroughly enjoyed,” Lynn said. “I was always working towards the next merit badge or campout.”

Lynn is a junior at James Clemens High School. He is 16 years old.

For his service project to qualify as an Eagle Scout, Lynn decided to build an outdoor chapel for Heritage Church in Madison. He built 16 large benches that can seat four to six people.

Supplies for his project required an extensive amount of materials involving large amounts of lumber, bolts, nuts and washers. “To assemble these benches, many steps had to be taken — many of which involved power tools, such as a circle saw, jig saw, router, power drill and other items. The rest of the assembly was connecting the parts and sanding,” Lynn said.

“The benches were then transported into the outdoor chapel in the forest behind the church,” Lynn said. “This project benefits Heritage Church in a major way as they now have a fully developed area for not only outdoor services but also (for activities with) their pre-school children.”

Lynn decided to join Scouts when he saw one of his friends recruiting for a troop. “I was in the second grade at the time, and since then I have learned a wide variety of skills including basic survival skills, such as fire starting, how to read a map, first aid and cooking,” he said. In addition, Lynn has been introduced to more specialized skills, like metalworking and automotive maintenance.

Along with Scouting, his extracurricular interests include the James Clemens Archery Team and James Clemens Greenpower Racing Team. He is enrolled in numerous advanced-placement classes.

His parents are Stuart and Janet Lynn. Stuart is Chief Financial Officer with Guarantee Home Mortgage Corporation. Janet is “a dedicated wife and mother of four,” Chase said.
