Four Boy Scouts from Troop 2 recently received their Eagle Scout awards for having organized over 750 combined volunteer hours benefitting four different organizations. The young men received their awards in a Court of Honor on Jan. 5 at St. Johns Presbyterian Church, according to Alan Wilson, Scoutmaster.
Ortega resident Dave DeStephano chose Camp I’m Special for his project. The Bishop Kenny High School senior constructed four new storage units, executed numerous camp improvement projects, and made a donation of $2000 to the camp, which provides opportunities to young people with disabilities.
Luke Lovelady, of Ortega, worked on St. Johns Presbyterian Church, prepping and painting the exterior of the Kirk House at St. Johns, sponsor of Troop 2, and where his father, Dr. Jonathan Lovelady, is the pastor. Lovelady is a freshman at Florida State University.
Another Ortega resident and a junior at Bishop Snyder High School, John Baker constructed and installed three hitching posts along horse trails at the north side of Betz Tiger Point Preserve.
Henry Wilson, of Avondale, spruced up Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd, cleaning, prepping, painting and making repairs to the men’s locker room of the aquatic center, an important community resource for people of all ages. Wilson is a senior at Episcopal School of Jacksonville.
