Over the summer of 2016, Mahoney supervised more than 110 hours of work for his Eagle Scout project. His project was the construction of a covered sandlot for use by the Brevard-Davidson River Presbyterian Weekday Preschool.

Mahoney was also inducted into the Order of the Arrow in 2015. The Order of the Arrow is Scouting's National Honor Society.

In addition to his family, including his parents, David and Christina, and sister, Lauren, Mahoney was joined at the Feb. 4 ceremony by his fellow Scouts and more than a dozen Eagle Scouts.

He was also presented special recognition by U.S. Rep. Mark Meadows, N.C. Sen. Chuck Edwards, Transylvania County Commissioner Jason Chappell, as well as the Sons of the American Revolution and the Pisgah Forest Rotary Club.

Mahoney plans on remaining active in Troop 703.
