Where eagles soar

(Continued)

Jacob’s project considered the community and the impact from West Nile Virus. He took a proactive approach to West Nile Virus by building purple martin housing to provide for a colony more than 250 birds. Purple martins eat more than 2,000 mosquitoes daily. His project also included planting a tree.

Another cherished aspect of service was geared for veterans, including a flag retirement ceremony for the local VFW, placing American flags on service members’ graves, and the “Welcome Home Hero” program.

James and Jacob have also pursued activities outside of scouting including basketball, karate, 4-H Robotics program and playing the violin. These young men have a passion for their community and country.

They are recognized for their contribution at community events for voter awareness, color guard at community events, county and state conventions and campaigs for election candidates.

They took this passion to deeper levels as participants and recognized students in Blackstone Institute courses on our U.S. Constitution as well as competing in Moot Court events. James and Jacob are home schooled and are active in their community.

Both young men are attending NALYE National Youth Advanced Leadership Experience this summer at BSA Philmont High Adventure Camp. They will continue to serve their troop and community.
