|A Message from the Eagle Scout
I plan to graduate from St, John the Baptist Diocesan High School in 2009. During the summer after my graduation, I would like
to go backpacking through Europe with some of my friends. I would like to go to college and follow on with the study of math,
science and/or if not I would follow on with History. When I graduate from college, I would like to into the field of government
with science and math, such as Forensics and, if not, would like to go into law. I am also thinking about a job such as an
historian. I find history very interesting. I like leaning about how our society and culture has gotten where it is today. I would like
to continue with crew. I find it very rewarding and challenging. It has taught my endurance and that hard work does payoff.
Hopefully, I can get a scholarship for my grades, Eagle experience, community service and crew. Eventually I will get married
and have a family. Hopefully, the person I marry will be a big Disney fan like me. Depending on where I obtain a job, I would like
to live in New York or Delaware. Of course, I would like to have children. I would like for them to have the best education I could
give them and put them in scouts, so that they can have the same experience I have had in scouts. Whether I have girls or
boys, I would be involved with them and scouts. I feel that it is very important to have scouting. Being in the scouts has taught
me many things that I would have never leaned had I not been in scouts.

For my Eagle project, I planned and constructed a serenity prayer garden for the Community Presbyterian Church
of Deer Park which happens to be the church my family attends. The project consisted of a black and gray paver
patio. I then installed two white benches and a white fence behind the benches. I plant seasonal flowers to
enhance the look of the serenity prayer garden. Now the members of my church have a place to pray outside.
I would like to thank all of my fellow scouts and leaders for their help in making this Eagle project a success.
