Project: I built an outdoor class room for the middle school of Covenant Day School in Matthews. The class room consisted of six benches, a leader table and leader bench, and a board for a black/white board.

I learned how to lead and manage a project for the benefit of others.

Alfred Bernard Shuford III, Troop 65, Philadelphia Presbyterian Church, Mint Hill, Al Shuford.

Project: My Eagle Scout Project was to update the instrument storage cabinets in Independence High School’s band room.

Not sure when the last time ANYTHING in the band room was touched, so I decided doors were the most vital. Previously, the doors were made out of particle board which received plenty of “love” over the years. The new doors are made of black melamine which is resistant to pencil markings, black markers as well as scratch-proof.

The doors provide security for the instruments stored within the room but also renews the feeling of both modernization and cleanliness.

I learned that even the simplest of projects can turn out to be an ordeal. Keep the sight of your vision.

Take it one step at a time. After all, who eats an elephant in one whole bite?
