Houston triplets receive Sea Scouting’s highest honor

Congrats to the Halling Triplets

Lilliebeth and Pollyanna Halling were jealous. Why did their brother, Aaron, get to go on all of these fun Boy Scout outings when they couldn’t?

That disappointment quickly turned to enthusiasm, though, when the triplets turned 16. That’s when the trio joined Sea Scouts and made adventure a family affair.

On Friday, their dedication paid off when all three earned the Quartermaster Award, Sea Scouting’s highest rank. They later said that reaching the summit of Sea Scouting was never in doubt; it was their plan from the start.

Now, there aren’t any records to confirm this, but word is that the Halling Three are the first triplets to achieve this honor. That makes it extra-special for the Halling family.

What’s next for these outstanding young people? Well, would it surprise you to learn that the trio decided to attend the same school, Texas A&M University? Or that they joined the prestigious Corps of Cadets together, too? I didn’t think so.

Congrats, Pollyana, Aaron, and Lilliebeth!
