Ben Anderson-Parks of Ramona Boy Scouts of America Troop 130 recently achieved the rank of Eagle Scout.
For his Eagle Service Project, he and members of his troop built a shade structure at the In His Steps Recovery Home for women. They worked diligently to provide an improved quality of life
for those in need in the community, troop leaders report.
The Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project is an opportunity for the Scout to demonstrate leadership while performing a project for the benefit of his community. The project is the culmination of the Eagle Scout candidate’s leadership training and requires a significant effort.
Anderson-Parks planned, organized, led and managed his project, including a significant fundraising effort. Because the project required the enlistment of other volunteers, he thanks all who helped him with the many aspects of project.
In particular, he said, he thanks Scoutmaster Tom Andrews, Assistant Scoutmaster John Schneider, Mr. Rogers, and the many parents, fellow Scouts, friends and family who donated their time, tools and supplies.
He also thanks Ransom Brothers Lumber for help with materials selection and generous donation.
Anderson-Parks is the son of U.S. Marine Corps Lt. Col. (Ret.) James Anderson and Debbie Parks.
