Boy Scout Shoots for Highest Rank

Friends, family and community members are dedicating their weekends to help a very determined Boy Scout. 17-year-old Andrew White is going for his Eagle Scout award this Spring, the highest merit of scout-hood. Nationally less than four percent of all scouts achieve the honor, which involves completing a list requirements while executing a project benefiting the community, said Troop 17 Chairman Dave Quinlan. Andrew's project entails the remodeling of the DePaolo Middle School courtyard, building a "theatre in the round" area surrounded by seats, benches, and a small pond. The idea is to allow students to hold classes and functions outdoors, and foster artistry in the school community. "I think it's cool to do a project that will benefit others in the future," Andrew said.
