Adam Camp of Wheaton was awarded the Eagle Scout rank by the Boy Scouts of America and Boy Scout Troop 575 during a ceremony at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Winfield.

He is the 45th Scout from the troop to be awarded the rank. As part of the award ceremony, Adam received letters of congratulations from President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, U.S. Sens. Mark Kirk and Dick Durbin of Illinois, and Gov. Pat Quinn.

The Eagle rank is the highest rank in Boy Scouts. Nationally, only 4 percent of Boy Scouts achieve this rank. For his Eagle Project, Adam led Scouts in a restoration and landscaping project at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Winfield.

Guest to the ceremony brought donations of more than 700 pounds of food for the St. Vincent DePaul food pantry.
 
Adam is a junior at St. Francis High School in Wheaton and plans to major in geographical studies in college. Adam joined Boy Scout Troop 575 in 2008 from Cub Scout Pack 575.
