Eagle Scouts at St. John’s Preparatory School Demonstrate Service
Four students at St. John’s Prep were recognized for their achievements as Eagle Scouts. Achieving the highest rank in the Boy Scout program, the Eagle Scout, is something most young cub scouts only dream of attaining when they first begin their journey in scouting. To soar to that height, a scout must complete a large-scale Eagle Scout service project that demonstrates leadership while giving back to his community.
Junior Ryan Frauenholz from Nahant used social media to raise $1600 to help with his clothing drive to keep local children warm over the winter. Colton Webster’s journey to Eagle Scout included building a shed, from scratch, for Trinitarian Congregational Church in North Andover, which is Troop 87's host organization where Colton is the Senior Patrol Leader. Senior John Chicoine from Troop 83 in Salem earned Eagle Scout status after restoring a beloved grotto at St. Anne’s Church. John Olds was recognized at the Troop 41 Eagle Scout Court of Honor at Holy Redeemer Nativity Church in Merrimac in April for his Eagle Scout project replacing missing markers along trails in the town forest.
Both St. John’s and the Eagle Scouts emphasize the importance of service to others, reverence to God, the value of simplicity, and servant leadership. All the boys agree that the support they received from their parents and scouting families made all the difference.
