Four local teens reach pinnacle of Boy Scouts
Four Scouts will be awarded the rank of Eagle Scout at the Court of Honor ceremony held Nov. 28 for Troop 642 sponsored by Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church.
The new Eagle Scouts are:
Chase Bains, 18, a freshman in electrical engineering at Texas A&M. Bains selected Good Country Baptist Church in Pattison, Texas, as beneficiary for his Eagle Scout Service Project. He provided new benches, fruit trees, landscaping and irrigation to the front façade of the church.
Luke Snelling, 16, a junior at Stratford High School. Snelling’s Eagle Scout service project was to design, organize, build and transport a massive owl enclosure for the Wildlife Center for Texas. The center provides protection and rehabilitation for the little critters of Harris County.
David Jeske, 17, a senior at Memorial High School. Jeske’s Eagle Scout service project benefitted Communidad de Garcia, a Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod in East Houston, involving a remodel of a Sunday School room to provide a welcoming space to teach children about God.
David Mouton, 17, a junior at Stratford High School. Mouton’s Eagle Project involved the complete demolition of 60 feet of wooden boardwalk for Kleb Woods Nature Center in Tomball and replacing it with a newer, sturdier version.
