David J. Dorman was saluted during an Eagle Scout ceremony at Calhoun United Methodist Church on Jan. 26.

Born April 1, 1996, in Cleveland, David has demonstrated a “great aptitude for mastering basic scout skills and has earned 27 merit badges,” a troop representative noted.

David was a member of Cub Scout Pack 616 as a Tiger Cub.

He has completed training in CPR, Junior Leadership skills and BSA Kayaking. His Special Awards as a Boy Scout include the World Conservation Award, 1-mile swim award and the coveted BSA Lifeguard.

He participated in the 2010 National Jamboree in Troop 1841 as part of the Great Smoky Mountain Contingent.

David has served in leadership positions as troop guide, patrol leader and senior patrol leader. He is also a member of the National Order of the Arrow for honor campers.

Outside of scouting, he is a member of the Calhoun United Methodist Church youth group. He played youth baseball with the Calhoun Cubs for seven years and youth football for Bradley County Youth for Sports for three years.

He likes to go hunting, fishing, and camping.

He is a junior at Walker Valley High School where he is active in the Walker Valley Mustang Band as a trumpet player.

David is a member of the Beta Club, Mu Alpha Theta, and the Duke Tip program.

His life goals include graduating from high school, obtaining a degree in computer science and ultimately a master’s degree in artificial intelligence. His first college of choice is Duke University; however, the University of Georgia is trying to recruit him for its programs.

David eventually wants to travel to Germany and spend some time enjoying the roots of his heritage.
