Project: Our church preschool asked for toddler-size picnic tables for the playground. My team made three for them, using Trex for the surfaces. They were also in need of a paved area for carpool. We leveled and built this area complete with a retaining wall/bench for the children to wait. If you use what you learn and believe in your leadership skills, you can do anything.
Nicholas Allen Migliaccio, Troop 232, Anthony and Bobbie Jo Migliaccio, St. Thomas of Aquinas Roman Catholic, Concord.
Project: For my Eagle Scout project I built an outside natural area at Patriots STEM Elementary School. The goal of my project was to build an area that allows the students to learn about plants and various wildlife that the plants attract. To begin the project I conducted a fundraiser at my church. After the fundraiser I began to organize the workdays for my project. I purchased new soil for the natural area. I built two benches that would be used as a place to sit in the natural area. I then purchased, refurbished, and painted an arbor. We installed metal edging around the natural area to keep in soil in place. With the leftover funds, we purchased flowers to go around the natural area. And the school also had tools that were left in their classrooms, so we decided to purchase a tool shed. The most important thing that I learned was how to conduct and execute my project. It was very important on how specific I had to be on the tasks that were given to fellow scouts and adults. I also learned the importance of planning the workdays according to weather and organizing pickup and drop off days for supplies.
Kevin Michael Butler, Troop 17, Jeanne Butler, Christ Episcopal.
Project: My project involved building six shelving systems for the Myers Park High School Band room for instrument storage. The shelving system has three areas of storage: a “garage” at the bottom for the large percussion instruments, a middle shelf for marching snare and tenor drums, and cubbies on top for drum stand and mallet storage, and other smaller equipment. A bar was put across the top of the units for hanging the marching drum carriers. The very top of the shelving units is used for displaying marching band trophies and other band awards. Three shelves are on each side of the band room, keeping everything neatly organized and out of the way. I learned that as a leader it is important to motivate people and make sure they are doing something they are capable of doing.
Michael Taft Martin, Troop 502, Scott and Kim Martin, Harrison United Methodist, Pineville.
Project: I built a bocce ball court at Pineville Lake Park. I had over 400 man hours invested into this project, spanning from August 2014 to August 2015. The project was also fully funded by the town of Pineville. I spoke in front of the town council and they approved the entire project. At the completion of the project, I was offered my first job at Pineville Parks and Rec. I learned that no matter how much planning I put into any project, there are always things that can go wrong; what matters most is what you do next.
Asante Parkins, Troop 1914, Rolando and Tricia Parkins, Parkwood CME Church.
Project: I created a prayer garden for Parkwood CME Church, Charlotte. I learned about giving back to the community that helped raise me.
Matthew Brent Jackson, Troop 515, Brent Jackson, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints St. Matthews Ward, Mint Hill.
Project: I built and installed steps made of 6-by-6 pressure treated wood and filled with pit gravel leading up to a bathrooms at the Mint Hill Historical Society. I also redid the parking lot by spreading and refilling it with granite gravel. The most important thing that I learned was that leading is a lot harder than being led. When you lead you have to constantly guide and help people to fulfill the vision that you have.
Matthew Lewis Griffin, Troop 1, Marty Griffin, Church of the Holy Comforter.
Project: I installed several structures at the Charlotte Bilingual Preschool. This included a storage shed as well as a teepee and water feature for the playground. The main part of the project was the construction of the shed, during which I led teams of Scouts in assembling the frame, adding siding and installing a roof and doors. I led smaller teams in the construction of the teepee and water feature on another workday. The most important thing I learned was the value of leading by example – earning the respect of those working with you by showing them that you aren’t afraid to do everything that you instruct others to do.
Charles F. Eaton III, Troop 8, Chuck & Heather Eaton St. Matthew Catholic, Waxhaw.
Project: To build a School Bus Stop for the Women’s Crisis Center of Charlotte.
Tyler Shoji Brimhall, Troop 4, Trent Brimhall, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Carmel Ward, Matthews.
Project: Tyler built wooden benches and installed them in the baseball dugout of the middle school he attended. Tyler learned that communication and thorough planning are the key to a project.
Nathanael Hunt Gunson, Troop 4, Blythe Gunson, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Carmel Ward, Matthews.
Project: He built and installed the wooden fence around the swimming pool where he trains and teaches young athletes. He learned that putting in time and effort into something is worth it.
Timothy Edward Rossow, Troop 8, Raleigh Rossow, St. Matthew Catholic.
Project: The project was to build a safe walkway on a steep hill in the community between the pool area and the pond below. It involved converting a little-used railroad-tie pathway into a wide stone-filled stairway complete with a handrail. The project took over 260 man-hours and several days to complete. I learned that leading is a lot easier when working with people. A leader who stands back and only tells people what to do is unpopular and isn’t followed very well.
