He has served numerous leadership roles in the troop, earned his Religious Emblem, Arrow of Light, Nani BaZhu Warrior at camp, Year of Celebration Award during the Boy Scout centennial year and attended the National Youth Leadership Training at Little Sioux Boy Scout Camp.

Kendall is the son of Scott Eveland of Ames, who is presently serving as Troop 110 Scoutmaster, and Liz Eveland of North Bend. His uncle, Jeff Eveland, earned the ranks of Eagle Scout in 2001.

The public is invited to the ceremony.
