Autistic youth earns Scouting’s highest honor
With a combination of courage and a bit of help from friends, anything is possible.
Just ask Jason Callans, a freshman at Issaquah High School. The 15-year-old was diagnosed with autism at age 3 yet is thriving in a variety of activities among his peers.
Jason’s most recent achievement is one he has been working toward for nearly a decade. In March, he was awarded the Eagle Scout badge, representing the highest possible rank for a Boy Scout.
