Eagle Scout, Award

I earned my Eagle Scout award in 2016 after over 10 years of scouting. To earn the award I had to first achieve all of the ranks below Eagle and then complete an Eagle Scout project. For my project, I renovated an old Lean-to and converted it into a semi-closed kitchen area, as well as an enclosure for campers to stay during the winter. I also installed removable half walls so the lean to could be used as an archery range in the summer.
