Zach Workman an Eagle Scout candidate in Troop 144 located at Blair Road United Methodist Church, is a senior at Queens Grant High School and is working on his Eagle Scout Service Project.  His community project is to build a patio around the school flag pole to create an attractive area with pavers, a free standing wall, attached lighting and Zach plans to complete his project the weekend prior to Thanksgiving.

This endeavor is an opportunity for a Boy Scout to demonstrate leadership of others while performing a project for the benefit of the community.  The Eagle Scout candidate must plan, organize, lead and manage the entire project from start to completion.  Also, the candidate must fulfill all requirements to achieve Eagle Scout which includes 21 merit badges, demonstrate Scout spirit and make a presentation.

This accomplishment is really an important achievement for a young man dedicated to scouting.  Only 4 percent of all Boy Scouts are granted this rank after many years of hard work and dedication in a rigorous review process.  The Eagle Scout is a long tradition with a lot of history going back to it’s beginning over one hundred years ago.  It is the highest rank attainable in the Boy Scouting Program of the Boy Scouts of America.

Zach expects to obtain and receive his Eagle Scout recognition this Spring in March or April in a ceremony in front of his peers, elders, family and friends.

After graduation as a senior Stallion at Queens Grant High School he is planning to attend Brevard College in North Carolina and major in Theater with a minor in business administration and marketing.

Zach would like to thank Shawn Coffman, Scout Master and Steve Fisher, Assistant Scout Master for all their guidance and direction throughout his years in scouting and in particular on the service project.  He also would like thank all those who have graciously contributed monetarily to the project so that he can pursue his goal of becoming an Eagle Scout.

Another Great Eagle Scout Project in progress.

Finally, Zach would like to thank his parents for keeping him on course and focused since he began scouting and continuing to motivate him to finish what he started to attain the highest rank a Boy Scout can achieve.  In the Spring of  2018, Zach will be joining a very elite group of young men.
