A trio of Boy Scouts sponsored by the Azle First United Methodist Church has excelled in an aquatic school.

Zach Bryan, David Snook, and Christian Nelson, members of Troup 147, graduated from the school that teaches water skills.

The boys exited the program as BSA certified lifeguards. That required learning emergency procedures – including 10 ways to save someone from distress in water – and aquatic first aid.

They are now skilled at rescue resuscitation, rowing, canoeing, kayaking, and snorkeling.

With the weeklong aquatic school being a leadership program, the threesome also learned and honed public speaking and presentation skills.

Snook shone in all areas of the school and earned the Anchorman Award as the top student.

The trio can now lead aquatic activities with their Troop.
