Boy Scouts of America Troop 402 of Lafayette proudly announces the remarkable achievement of six Life Scouts who have recently attained the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout. This distinction, earned by less than 6% of all Scouts BSA members, is a reflection of their grit and leadership.
The Troop celebrated the following scouts at a recent?Eagle Court of Honor:
Grace Chehlaoui, Senior at Acalanes High School. Grace's project team made fleece blankets which were donated to the Bay Area Ronald McDonald House. Grace writes "I am most grateful for Scouting giving me the ability to work with and guide younger Scouts and help them on their Scouting journey."
Rain Damon-Espinas, Senior at Campolindo High School. Rain's project team built a free-standing bulletin board at Joaquin Moraga Intermediate School. Rain writes "I am grateful for my family, my friends and my troop - they believed in me and supported me during this process, even when I didn't believe in myself."
Sienna Jorgensen, Junior at Campolindo High School. Sienna's project team assembled personalized mental health kits for families of hospitalized children. Sienna writes "I am most grateful for the Eagle scouts and youth leadership team of Troop 402, (who) are awesome role models of proud, bold, ambitious Eagle Scouts. I really do owe it to them for inspiring me to pursue the rank myself, in addition to embarking on adventures in the backcountry that I will never forget."
Maureen Kang, Senior at Campolindo High School. Maureen's project team organized a book drive for the Children's Book project. Maureen expresses gratitude for "My family, who have supported me through my entire scouting journey, and my friends, who are always willing to lend a helping hand."
Fiona Markey, Junior at Campolindo High School. Fiona's project team made blankets for Project Linus, which supports hospitalized children. Fiona writes "I am grateful for all the support I received and people I've met."
Jenna Steele, Senior at Acalanes High School. Jenna's project team ran a healthy lifestyle fair for participants of the Lafayette Reservoir Run. Jenna writes "I am most grateful for my parents who supported me throughout my scouting journey. I'm also grateful for my older brother who convinced me to join 402 in the first place."
The troop congratulates the newly minted Eagle Scouts and celebrates their journey of growth, camaraderie, and service to the community. More information about them can be found here: www.troop402.org
