Cerebral Palsy Doesn’t Stop Golden Valley Man From Becoming an Eagle Scout

The Star Tribune reported that David Spragg achieved his goal after 30 years.

It took Golden Valley resident David Spragg 30 years to become an Eagle Scout, according to an article recently published in the Star Tribune.  Spragg, 43, has cerebral palsy and writer Anna Pratt says that simple tasks, like building a fire, can be difficult.

“At times he felt impatient, but he never gave up, and last month Spragg saw his efforts pay off,” Pratt reported.

According to the article, Pragg received his Eagle badge in Fridley last week, where troop 364 meets.

“You can find a way if you have the will. I think that’s David’s motto,” Spragg’s first scoutmaster, Bill Anderl, said in the article.
