Scout Paints Church for Eagle Project

The experience of being in a church can be powerful. Whether it’s a typical Sunday service, a wedding, a funeral, or another event, the church offers attendees a place to connect personally and spiritually.

Scout Daniel S. of the Boy Scouts of America Laurel Highlands Council, attends church in his community and has found it to be an important part of his life. So, when it came time to put together an Eagle project, he knew that is how he wanted to give back to his community.

For his Eagle Scout project, he organized repainting efforts that targeted three key rooms in the Our Lady of Grace Church in his community. Daniel and his team of 20 volunteers painted the bride room, crying room, and an upper room at the church.

In total, the volunteers spent 85 hours completing the actual painting process. Planning and other work added to the total hours completed for Daniel’s project.

“He is just an all-around good kid, just like Scouts are supposed to be,” said his Scoutmaster Norm Miller.
