Douglasville, GA - On June 11, 2019, Douglas County Commission Chairman Dr. Romona Jackson Jones presented Boy Scout Luke Alexander Meador, a member of Troop 626 of the Atlanta Area Council in Douglasville, with a proclamation to recognize and congratulate his Eagle Scout Rank.
The Eagle Scout Rank is the highest rank that may be attained in the Boy Scouts of America which requires a mastery of difficult challenges in a variety of areas. This rank requires character, courage, self-reliance, and resourcefulness.
The Chapel Hill High School student had to earn 32 merit badges, serve his troop as Senior Patrol leader twice and serve in several other leadership roles in order to become an Eagle Scout.
When Meador was attending Chapel Hill Middle School, he completed his Eagle Scout major service project. The project consisted of organizing the building of four benches and four tables in an interior courtyard. Due to these improvements, teachers and students at the school are able to utilize the courtyard during their academic activities and lessons.
The title of Eagle Scout is held for life, thus giving rise to the phrase "Once an Eagle, always an Eagle." This achievement makes Luke Alexander Meador an upstanding example and representative for the youth in Douglas County.
"On behalf of the Board of Commissioners, we would like to congratulate Luke Meador on his accomplishments thus far," Chairman Jones said. "We are excited to see the next challenge he decides to overcome in the future."
Luke Alexander Meador is a sophomore at Chapel Hill High School and is taking Advanced Placement classes and plans to attend the College and Career Institute next year with a course in Criminal Justice.

LIBERTY ROAD BRIDGE CLOSURE
GDOT will be closing the Liberty Road bridge over I-20 beginning June 1st to do improvements to the bridge. The bridge work will be similar to the work GDOT performed at Post Road and several other locations along I-20. GDOT anticipates the bridge will be closed for 45 days.
The detour route will be as follows:
Vehicles on Liberty Road headed north to points north of I-20, will be directed to take I-20 east to Post Road, turn left on Post Road, cross over the bridge there and take I-20 west back to the Liberty Road/Mirror Lake Blvd interchange. They can then exit at the westbound ramp at that interchange and turn right to continue northbound on Mirror Lake Blvd.
Similarly, vehicles traveling southbound on Liberty Road to areas south of I-20 will be directed to take I-20 west to SR 61, take the westbound exit ramp, turn left on SR 61 and cross over the bridge at that location, then take I-20 east back to Liberty Road and exit at the Liberty Road interchange then turn right to proceed southbound on Liberty Road.
