King, a member of Troop No. 43 at Dalewood Middle School in Chattanooga, is the son of RaSharon M. King of Cleveland.
Josh is a 2011 graduate of Tyner High School, where he was a four-year honor roll student. He is currently a sophomore at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville studying kinesiology.
Joshua was a member of the Beta Club and the National Achievers Society, and honored as an All American Scholar and Dream keeper.
He was the first student from his school (Tyner Academy) to be recommended for the TVA “School to work” program. He was active in his church as usher, choir member and student leader of the church youth group.
For his Eagle community service project, Josh did a bluebird rehabilitation project for Booker T. Washington State Park.
He built and mounted along the waterfront, on trees, 15 birdhouses designed specifically for bluebirds.
This project was designed to bring bluebirds back to the park, after a 10-year migration decline.
A Court of Honor will honor Josh during the Christmas holidays, according to Larry Bowie, scoutmaster.
