MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (AP) — A 12-year-old boy from Mount Pleasant has become an Eagle Scout.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reports (http://bit.ly/nAiqcL ) Austin Ando became an Eagle last month and is among the youngest to receive the honor.

Ando earned the rank just over a year after joining the Boy Scouts of America. Most youngsters take several years to attain Eagle.

Austin says he enjoys camping and the other trips Scouts take. He says being an Eagle will mean a chance for longer trips and other opportunities with the Boy Scouts.
