Andrew Schemmel of Durant earned his Eagle Scout ranking. Schemmel has been a member of Durant Boy Scout Troop 153 for seven years. His Eagle Scout project was restoring the Shryer family headstone. Schemmel was first approached about the project by the Durant American Legion, which is named after J.L. Shryer. The project required removing the headstone footings, re-pouring the cement footings, cleaning all the headstones related to the family and remounting them. The overall project took around 80 hours to complete. Andrew is the son of Dean and Susan Schemmel and now is a student at the University of Iowa.
