Becomes youngest African-American Eagle Scout.
Good on 'im. Making Eagle Scout is hard. Doing it by the age of 12? Unreal.
You want to know what the biggest help for him was? I spotted it pretty early.
His name is James Hightower the Third.
His father's name is James Hightower the Second.
His mother's name is Lucretia Hightower.
Stable nuclear families produce good kids, as a rule. Both his parents are active as Scout Leaders, based on the shirts they were wearing for the interview. A nuclear family, setting good examples, produces good kids. Eagle Scouts. Leaders.
Now, compare this family to a majority of the EBT crowd that freaked out yesterday, and hazard a guess at how many of those folks come from families where they all share the same last name?
