Nicholas Brozovic, 15, of Merton has earned the highest achievement in the Boy Scouts of America, the Eagle Scout Award. Nicholas was recognized in an Eagle Court of Honor on Feb. 25 at the Merton Community Center.

He is a member of Troop 47 in Merton, which is chartered by the Merton Community Fire Department.

Nick is an active member of the Arrowhead High School class of 2019; he participates in cross-country, track and field and ESports. He is the son of Michael and Kristin Brozovic. 

Nick is one of about 4 percent of all Boy Scouts who achieve the Eagle rank. To achieve the Eagle Rank in Scouting, each candidate must earn 21 merit badges and successfully develop, plan, and complete a service project that benefits any religious institution, school or the community. Nick’s project benefited Fisher House of Wisconsin.

Fisher House provides a “home away from home” for military and veterans families to be close to loved ones during hospitalization at the Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center in Milwaukee.

He led a team of Scouts and adults to construct and install building benches for a bus waiting area, an outside relaxation area, including seating, a game table and sun protection, an outdoor storage shed and outdoor yard games. 

Nick has served in many roles in Troop 47, including librarian, patrol leader, scribe and assistant patrol leader. He continues to remain active in Boy Scouts and plans to join a Venturing Crew.
