Triplets Russ, Nick and Paul Pierce of Stafford joined Fredericksburg’s Chip Maurer to earn their Eagle Scout awards Sunday.

The four Scouts were among six who started Cub Scout Pack 170 at Fredericksburg United Methodist Church in 2006. They went on to join Troop 170 at the church.

The group of Scouts also marked the 100th Eagle Scout to come from Troop 170. The first Eagle from the troop was Waldo Beck in 1939.

Maurer, the son of Dr. Charles Maurer and Stephanie Maurer, is a student at James Monroe High School.

The Pierces are the sons of Roger and Sheri Pierce. They attend Brooke Point High School.

Eagle Scout is the highest award available in Boy Scouts. Scouts must earn 21 merit badges, take leadership roles in the troop, and plan and execute a community service project to earn the award.
