He says he started as a Cub Scout in 2008 and had his Eagle Court of Honor Saturday. “It means a lot that I’ve reached the highest point,” says Gutierrez. “I can teach other scouts and other people kindness in the world and to push themselves to becoming a person.”

Gutierrez says he applied to be a troop leader as his next step and should hear back in the summer.
