Arlington Boy Scout Troop 638 holds Court of Honor for 3 Eagle Scouts

An Eagle Scout Court of Honor was held on 11 January 2014 for Jethro Torczon, a senior at Bishop O'Connell High School, Billy Schwanke, a senior at Yorktown High School, and Andrew Kiser, a freshman at University of Virginia, all members of Boy Scout Troop 638 affiliated with the Little Falls Presbyterian Church in Arlington.  Jethro's Eagle Scout Project involved redeveloping a trail at Sharp Park in Arlington County.  Under his guidance, scouts cleared off the existing path, removed old timbers and nailed down new ones, then spread cloth and covered the path with gravel.  Billy’s Eagle Scout project was a continuation of this trail work.  He led scouts in leveling additional ground, laying cloth, nailing down new timbers and spreading gravel, extending the path to a nearby bus stop.  Andrew’s Eagle Scout project was to build an observation platform in the wetlands preservation area at Campbell Elementary School.  Under Andrew’s supervision, the scouts leveled the ground, then used pressure-treated lumber and plastic decking boards to construct an elevated platform from which students and teachers can observe the wetlands without damaging the environment.  Congratulations Eagle Scouts!
