Eagle Scout Project
I was awarded the rank of Eagle Scout on February 28th, 2016 through Troop 61 of Milwaukee, WI. For my project, I organized a group of around 30 Junior Leaders and adults from the troop to restore campsites at Nebish Lake, Pallette Lake and Day Lake near Boulder Junction, WI. This restoration included restoring parking lots, cutting brush, painting signs and tables, spreading mulch and the digging of toilets for campers. This project provided challenges, as these tasks were in three main locations. However, given the amazing support of the troop along with the supervision of the Department of Natural Resources, we were able to complete all assigned tasks in just under 5 hours. Below are some photos of troop members assisting me on the path toward achieving this rank…along with one particularly photogenic opportunity of me putting finishing touches on one of the latrines (don’t worry, it wasn’t used yet).
My Fraternity – Sigma Tau Gamma
During my time at UW-Whitewater, I became a proud member of Sigma Tau Gamma – Kappa Chapter during my freshman year. My fraternity was founded in 1920 at the University of Central Missouri under the principles of Learning, Integrity, Excellence, Leadership, Citizenship and Brotherhood. Our national philanthropy is working with Special Olympics whereas our local philanthropy includes maintaining the local section of the Ice Age Trail…just like my Eagle Scout project! I am currently an active member in my final semesters at UWW, holding a position on the digital recruitment committee. Come check us out on Instagram and Facebook! Here are some of my favorite memories.
