Creps awarded Eagle Scout honor


Tyler James Creps received the Eagle Scout Award in a ceremony on July 28 at Papillion-LaVista South High School.

Creps, the son of Dennis and Paula Creps, will be a sophomore this fall at Papillion-LaVista South High School.

He plays football for the Titans, is involved with drama, is on the honor roll and plays baseball through the Papillion Recreation Organization. He also works part-time for the Papillion Recreation Organization as an umpire for the 9-year-old baseball teams.

Since joining Troop 463 in 2011 through St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, Creps has served in the positions of Patrol Leader, Senior Patrol Leader, Chaplain’s Aide and Den Chief for his younger brother’s Cub Scout pack.

He has participated in numerous monthly camps since transitioning over to Boy Scouts, including trips to the Black Hills and Minnesota.

For his eagle project, Creps wanted to give back to the Papillion Recreation Organization by building a baseball supply storage shed for the Papio Bay baseball fields.

He worked with the City of Papillion and Home Depot to coordinate and complete this project and also had moral and monetary support from family and friends.
