Isabelle “Zuzu” Hartman of Muscatine has become the first female Eagle Scout in the Quad Cities region.
Boy Scouts of America opened up their program to females in February of last year and renamed the organization “Scouts BSA.”
Zuzu joined and quickly moved up the ranks to earn her Eagle Scout, the highest achievement. She earned her eagle scout ranking in just about 18 months, a tight timeline for the major accomplishment.
