St. Thomas Episcopal School announces new Eagle Scouts
Two students at St. Thomas' Episcopal School were recently named Eagle Scouts.
The students, Andrew Flato and Alex McKenzie of Troop No. 1226, both graduated in May from St. Thomas' Episcopal School.
According to a press release, both became scouts in second grade.
For Flato's Eagle Scout project, he constructed 12 line-up benches for the Maplewood Swim Team. He also painted the benches the team colors and stenciled the logo on each bench.
In addition to his Eagle Scout project, Flato earned 32 merit badges and received the 50 miler, world conservation and emergency preparedness awards, the press release stated.
McKenzie used his interest in building and demolition and organized a crew of volunteers to remove the fencing, trees, bushes and power pole that obstructed the view of the new sign installed near the school's soccer field. He also planted new bushes, grass and a tree behind the sign, along with a new fence.
According to the press release, McKenzie saved the school approximately $3,000 by completing this project.
In addition to his Eagle Scout project, McKenzie earned 29 merit badges and received his 50 miler, world conservation and emergency preparedness awards.
In the fall, Flato plans to study biochemistry at Baylor University and McKenzie plans to study business at Texas A&M.
