Reading room gets a facelift

October 6, 2010

An area elementary school has a new reading room due to the collaboration of parents, teachers and several hard-working Boy Scouts.
Boy Scout Coan McAlpine, 14, decided to take on the Clyde Cambell Elementary School guided-reading room as his Eagle Scout project.
McAlpine wanted to paint the room and build shelves to house books and other supplies, but he knew he couldn't complete the project alone.
"There were a lot of projects I thought about, but this one just seemed to be one of the ones that fit what we wanted to do," he said.
McAlpine, who attended Clyde Campbell, collaborated with Assistant Principal Laura Ingenito to get the project started.
"This was a group effort," Ingenito said. "It took a whole bunch of us to get it together."

Scout Project

Kudos to the newspaper for highlighting another Eagle Scout project.

There are 25-50 Eagle service projects completed annually that are very similar to McAlpine's project that benefit schools, neighborhoods, parks, churches, and other community organizations every year. Scout projects must be done to benefit anohter group other than the Scouts.Scouts learn community service at all levels starting in the first grade.

Congratulations to McAlpine and other local Scouts for a job well done!
