We are so very proud of Patrick. It takes hard work and dedication to become an Eagle Scout and we know he’s worked very hard! His Eagle Project was the transformation of an outdoor classroom at Crone Middle School (District 204) to include a lending library, a new path from the parking lot to the classroom area, mulching of path as well as remulching of the existing space, planters/flowers, and an 800 rock garden that was spread out over the entire area, which were painted by students, Scouts and community members. The Scouts were also able to remulch the entire front of the school, as they had leftover materials. Nearly 700 volunteers were involved with the project, providing almost 800 hours of service.
Patrick is a Scout at Troop 889 in Naperville, IL. The Troop meets at Wheatland Salem Church at the corner of 95th Street and Book Road.
Congrats Patrick! May you continue to live the Scout life and inspire more scouts to follow in your footsteps.
