Moraga Boy Scout Troop 212 held its 59th Eagle Court of Honor at Moraga Valley Presbyterian Church on Sunday, May 1. The Court recognized the achievements of eight young men who have fulfilled all the requirements necessary to earn the rank of Eagle Scout, BSA's highest rank. Each Scout earned a minimum of 21 merit badges, participated in 25 or more campouts and at least one 50-miler backpacking high adventure, and fulfilled the Scout Oath to do their duty to God and country by serving in leadership positions at school and in the community.
Just as an eagle flies high and soars over vast areas, so the Eagle Scout sets his standards of personal character high and over all aspects of his life. The 2022 Troop 212 Eagle Scout class members include: Michael Coane, Zack Donovan, Mason Fara, Adam Harper, Bryce Maher, Quinn Ricketts, Ryan Sintchak, and Alexander Yee.
Each Scout planned, executed, and led a service project to help others, another aspect of the Scout Oath. On the whole and though they were individually planned, the Scouts' projects uniquely responded to the needs of our times. Two Scouts, Bryce Maher and Ryan Sintchak, created fire barriers to protect Rheem Elementary School and Moraga Valley Presbyterian Church, respectively. Two Scouts worked on school libraries: Alexander Yee refurbished St. John School's Library by reviewing 7,000 books, revising the library's website, and replacing or adding over 500 new books, while Zack Donovan designed and built a new bookshelf to showcase diversity, equity, and inclusion materials at Los Perales Elementary School. Quinn Ricketts' project, planned pre-pandemic yet especially helpful during a pandemic, benefitted Campolindo High School's music program as he designed and built custom music clips that hold sheet music onto music stands so that the Campo bands can play outside. Adam Harper built a bench in memory of Johnathon Klock, father of a close friend, a mentor, and a coach to many Bay Area kids; the bench was originally placed at the Campolindo High School football field, though it has since been moved to the Klock's family property. Michael Coane conducted a toiletries drive for Harbor House Ministries in Oakland, a community development organization that serves an ethnically diverse population, and Mason Fara reminded us of local history as he installed a monument and plaque commemorating the Sacramento Northern Railway Station in Moraga.
