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."
