Kerntke, Schmidt earn Gold Medals of Achievement



Phillip Schmidt (right) and Gabriel Kerntke (left), both of Plymouth, were recently awarded the Royal Ranger Gold Medal of Achievement (GMA). Philip, the son of Sebastian and Leonore Schmidt, is a student at St. John’s Academy; Gabriel, the son of Reiner and Beth Kerntke, is homeschooled. Royal Rangers is a boys mentoring program that seeks to develop the next generation of men into lifelong servant leaders. The GMA is the highest recognition in the Royal Ranger program. Less than 1 percent of the boys involved in Royal Rangers each year earn the GMA. To be awarded the GMA a boy must earn merits in the three categories: activities, leadership, and religion; and then complete a capstone project. Phillip’s project was to create a prayer garden at Christian Life Church in Plymouth. Gabriel chose to give an oral presentation of his journey to manhood based on the book “A Guy’s Journey to Manhood” by Doug Marsh. Phillip has also recently graduated from the Royal Ranger Junior Leadership Training Academy. After completing five leadership training sessions of four days each, the Academy graduate earns a personalized ceremonial saber and dons the white beret and white gloves with his dress uniform as shown in the photo above.
