GRACE is extremely grateful to the young men who have invested their energy, skill set and time to build an Eagle Project that serves our GRACE family.
The Eagle Scout rank is not one that is easily attained. Boys Scouts must live by the principles of the Scout Oath and Law – which places high value on service and honor – and earn a total of 21 merit badges that range from first aid to the “Citizenship in the Nation” badge, which encourages scouts to be grateful for their liberties and rights.
Among other requirements is an individual service project deemed helpful to a religious institution, school or community, otherwise known as the Eagle Scout Project. A project proposal must be thought up by the Boy Scout, approved by the Boy Scout Council, and executed.
Alex Mathison is a sophomore at Colleyville Heritage High School. He is on the Varsity Cross Country and Track teams, and attends St. Michael Catholic Church. Alex began his Eagle Scout Project by taking on the responsibility of building the GRACE Main Campus back fence. His older brother previously built a fence for us around our walk-in freezer for his Eagle Scout Project.
This was no easy task with the pre-summer heat beating down on the Scout and his troop. With all hands on deck, the project was completed with close to 100 total hours from start to finish! Thank you so much to Dylan and his group for building our new fence and making our campus and neighbors’ yards beautifully complete!
“I really liked being able to help an organization that helps so many people.”
