Local street is where Eagles soar


The residential street, Teton Court in Lone Tree, is home to eight Eagle Scouts, referred to now as the “Teton Eagles.”

“Statistics show that only two out of every 100 young men who enter scouting will ever reach the rank of Eagle Scout,” said Ann Guerin, proud mom of two of those impressive statistics, Matthew, a senior in high school and his older brother, Michael.

The other Eagle Scout in the Guerin’s family is the boy’s uncle, Robert Bull of Dallas.

“I feel proud to come from a street full of Eagle Scouts because I know that I will always have the others behind me,” Matthew said. “And that I came from a group of great leaders and amazing friends.”

The Eagle Scout honor is considered the highest rank attainable in the Boy Scouts program. To obtain Eagle Scout status, requirements include earning at least 21 merit badges and demonstrating scout spirit, service and leadership. This includes an extensive service project that the scout plans, organizes, leads and manages.

Matthew’s project was at the St. Andrew United Methodist Church, where he organized and led his friends, neighbors, church members and fellow scouts in the making of two octagonal picnic tables.

At Matthew’s Eagle Scout Court of Honor celebration, his older brother, Michael, officiated as the master of ceremonies. Michael is a senior at Colorado State University and will graduate in May with a major in chemical engineering. Michael wasn’t the only Eagle Scout from Teton Court who made it back for the honor ceremony for Matthew.

The first “Teton Eagle,” Jason Minutillo, is a graduate of Metro State College of Denver and teaches at Thomas Jefferson High School. Jeffrey Minutillo is a student at Metro State College of Denver majoring in chemistry, with a concentration in forensic science.

Brockton and Broderick Sheard, also “Teton Eagles” are students at Brigham Young University. Bretson and 1st Lt. Brandon Sheard were not able to make the celebration.

In Matthew’s final year of high school, he can add Eagle Scout to a long list of other accomplishments. Choir, marching band, theater and various leadership awards at school and church. He landed the lead role of Don in the play “Butterflies are Free” and Tommy in the musical “Annie Get Your Gun,” among others.

“Getting my Eagle Scout is important because I know that whatever I do in my career, I will use all of the leadership and everyday skills I gained in scouting,” Matthew said.
