Eagle Scout project

Eagle Scout project

John Deltz, an Eagle Scout candidate with Troop 11 at First Presbyterian Church, completed the project portion of his Eagle Scout journey. John, a junior at Lamar High School, reached out to Pershing, his former middle school. He worked with Tony Houck, the PTO representative for outdoor beautification. Two high foot-traffic areas were missing sidewalks; when it rained, the areas became mud pits, a safety hazard. John came up with a plan, ordered supplies and recruited troop members, friends and family to pitch in. More than 30 volunteers participated in the project, which included heavy lifting, shoveling, removing old dirt and debris and replacing it with weed barriers, sand, pavers and gravel.
