Justin Grow is the 77th Eagle Scout in Troop 400 based in Greenhills at our Lady of the Rosary parish. His path to this accomplishment all started when he joined the Boy Scout troop at the age of 11. The road to Eagle involves leadership positions within the troop, earning 21 Merit Badges and completing an Eagle project. Justin's involvement with the Pride of La Salle inspired him to approach the school staff with his idea.
"I decided to do my project because as a part of La Salle's band, I have noticed that the fine arts programs sometimes go unnoticed," says Grow. "I put up shelves in the main office for all of the various programs at La Salle. I also created a 'Wall of Achievement' to include an Eagle Scout recognition plaque."
Justin planned, fundraised and rallied the help of many volunteers to take the project from beginning to end.
The Eagle Scout Award is the highest award in Boy Scouts of America. Less than 7% of scouts earn the Eagle Scout Award.
