20-year old Christian Matkovich of King of Prussia, PA has just carried on a family tradition that many didn’t think he could: becoming an Eagle Scout. Christian, who has cerebral palsy, has been scouting since he was in the first grade. Following in the footsteps of his two brothers, Christian worked to obtain the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest rank attainable in the Boy Scouts of America program. In addition to earning at least 21 merit badges, Eagle Scout candidates must complete a service project and complete a board review. Christian’s Eagle Scout service project focused on providing school supplies for children in developing counties. He passed his oral review using electronic speech. “It’s so difficult for some people to get past the wheelchair. They see somebody in a wheelchair, and think their mind doesn’t work either,” said his mother Mary. Despite the many challenges Christian’s cerebral palsy poses, he hasn’t let the condition hold him back one bit from achieving his goals.
