Benjamin Jay Wright of Issaquah and William Stanley Harding of Newcastle will receive Eagle Scout awards today at Aldersgate Methodist Church in Bellevue.

The two are members of Troop 638, chartered by the church.

To achieve the rank of Eagle Scout, each candidate must earn 21 merit badges and successfully complete a service project that benefits a community, religious institution, or school.

For his service project, Wright worked with Puget Sound Blood Center to recruit blood donors at a Scout Expo in September, and held a blood drive at Aldersgate Methodist Church in October.

Harding planned and directed the building of two large bulletin boards at Castlewood State Park in Ballwin, Mo.
