I am very pleased to announce our Troop's newest Eagle Scout. Bobby Kohl
passed his Board of Review last night, a week before his thirteenth birthday.
Bobby is an outstanding young man, who joins his mother's four uncles as
Eagles. Despite his small size and being (until recently) the youngest Scout
in the troop, he has earned the respect of the other Scouts. His peers have
elected him Patrol Leader twice and he served one term as Assistant Senior
Patrol Leader. He has been one of the most active Scouts during his 25
months in the troop, and has earned 42 merit badges so far. His goal is to
earn all the merit badges, and I think he just might do it.
Bobby's Eagle Service Project involved work for his former school, Gold Hill
Elementary, a one-room school in his tiny mountain town above Boulder. Under
his direction, members of our troop extended a retaining wall and installed a
drainage system to prevent water and ice from accumulating on the playground.
We also removed rocks from the playground, using them to build two
rock-walled flower beds at the school entrance. These were planted with
bulbs that are now beginning to bloom. The effect of the project has been to
make the playground much safer and more pleasant for the students.
Please join ne in congratulating Bobby on his accomplishment.
