Please give a brief description of your Eagle Scout project.
My Eagle Scout project was building three weather-resistant picnic tables for the Bonnet Carre Spillway. Two of the tables were for the daily use areas and the other was for Campsite 1. All three of the tables were chained and anchored to the ground to prevent theft. I managed 17 volunteers that worked for a total of 125 man-hours for my project.

Becoming an Eagle was not about the rank but the life skills that I learned.

Achieving the rank of Eagle Scout is not easy as many know which made completing it and seeing years of hard work come together over the course of a couple months a very fulfilling experience. It is by far one of the best accomplishments of my life so far.

Please give a brief description of your Eagle Scout project.
I conducted a supply drive for Animal Rescue of New Orleans, a local non-profit no-kill animal shelter, which is dedicated to the rescue and aid of abandoned and homeless animals, who are sick, abused, and neglected. The shelter was in desperate need of all types of supplies. After visiting local grocery stores to secure paper bags to hold the supplies, I led a team of approximately 12 volunteers who distributed more than 400 grocery bags to my neighbors. Each grocery bag had a description of the project and a list of what ARNO needed. The next week, another 12 volunteers picked up the bags that my neighbors had filled with the supplies. We collected more than 123 bags filled with supplies valued at $2,000.

It was a long process that I had put off for a while and that made getting it all done quite the stressful event. However, I did finish it and it has been one of the most rewarding things I've ever done.

I was in charge of refurbishing the LOOP facility in City Park. I couldn't complete the project on donations alone. I asked St. Pius X church if my troop and I could host a car wash during Mass, so when people left their cars were cleaned. The funds obtained were in a greater surplus and allowed more to be done than intended. Weeds were pulled and the grass cut to clear the way to the outhouse and only source of water. The benches were sanded and repainted with the addition of a new bench paid from donations. Trees and other plants were donated and planted, as well.

It was a proud moment that my hard work had finally paid off. I was setting an example for the troop as I was their one and only eldest leader.

For my project, I did landscaping work at Holy Name of Jesus' Parish Center for a 20-foot length between the street and sidewalk, laying a pathway of concrete pavers along the curb, installing edging, spreading fresh dirt, and planting mondo grass to cover the area. This will serve as a model for the first phase of a major landscaping project the parish wants to do.

Becoming an Eagle Scout is the official accomplishment acknowledging what I have done. What is more significant to me though, is everything I have been able to experience and all the fun I have had with a good group of friends in the process of getting here.

Becoming an Eagle Scout is, to this day, one of my greatest accomplishments, because it took over 8 years of hard work, dedication, and fortitude to achieve. The process taught me so much over the past eight years, and gave me the foundation to be a resourceful leader at facing adversity and problems throughout my life.
