BELLA VISTA, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — A Bella Vistan’s being celebrated as one of the first women to become an Eagle Scout.
This evening, the Boy Scouts of America held a virtual event honoring their inaugural class of female Eagle Scouts.
Kathryn Singleton lives in Bella Vista and she says growing up, she always did scouting tasks with her brother — but she couldn’t pursue Eagle Scout status until 2019.
She’s honored to be among the “first” in history but found it hard to describe.
“It’s just like okay you’re the first to have done this ever. Cool, thanks! I mean, that’s how it feels,” Singleton said.
Singleton is about to finish up her bachelor’s degree from Missouri Southern, and says she wants to own a dog grooming studio.
