Wisconsin teens among the nation's inaugural class of female Eagle Scouts

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Four local girls have made history as some of the first-ever female Eagle Scouts.

The teenagers, from Three Harbors Council, BSA, will be honored on Sunday, Feb. 21 during a Facebook Live ceremony celebrating their "service, leadership and groundbreaking accomplishments," according to a press release.

The scouts honored include:

Annie Scheidt, (Racine) - Scouts BSA Troop 218 chartered to the Oak Creek Lions Club
For her Eagle Scout Service Project, Annie constructed two notice/display boards for the Racine
County Pony Club (RCPC). The boards will provide RCPC with areas to display information used
during horse shows, clinics, and community outreach events.
Cassie Scheidt, (Racine) - Scouts BSA Troop 218 chartered to the Oak Creek Lions Club
For her Eagle Scout Service Project, Cassie built a mulched viewing area with three octagonal
picnic tables and benches at the RCPC. The project created a viewing area for the outdoor arena
and a great location to hold day camps and outreach programs.
Annastasia Wischki, (Saukville) - Scouts BSA Troop 338 chartered to VFW Post 11038 in
Waterford

For her Eagle Scout Service Project, Annastasia designed and built a serenity circle garden in the
nature center of her church, Alliance Bible Church. The garden is themed with three areas
including reflection globes, wind chimes, birdhouses, and feeders. The entire garden was
landscaped with flowers, greenery, and benches.
Jaisyn Daher , (Caledonia) - Scouts BSA Troop 2002 chartered to the Bartlett Youth
Foundation in Racine

For her Eagle Scout Service Project, Jaisyn installed an American flag collection box at the
Bartlett Youth Foundation. To inform the community about this new resource, she created an
informational door hanger and organized volunteers to deliver the hangers door-to-door. Jaisyn
also provided training to her Troop and youth center on how to properly conduct a flag retirement 
ceremony.

“Earning the rank of Eagle Scout takes hard work and perseverance, and we are honored to recognize Annie, Cassie, Annastasia and Jaisyn for this significant accomplishment,” said Andrew Hardin, scout executive of Three Harbors Council, BSA. “Along the journey to Eagle Scout, Scouts learn new skills, overcome obstacles and demonstrate leadership among their peers and in their communities. These benefits are invaluable for everyone, and we are thrilled that they are now available to even more youth.”

In recent years, BSA began welcoming girls first into Cub Scouts and then into Scouts BSA last February.

Since then, tens of thousands of young women throughout Wisconsin and across the country have joined.
