SCout earnS ea­gle rank with new ClaSS­room

Austin American-Statesman - - LOCALBRIEFING -

18, son of Teresa and Randy Parks of Austin, earned the Ea­gle Scout rank­ing, the high­est level of recog­ni­tion in the Boy Scouts.

He de­signed, planned and built an out­door class­room at Clint Small Mid­dle School.

He, along with his friends and fel­low Scouts of Troop 505, char­tered by Oak Hill United Methodist Church, con­structed and in­stalled six benches, a lectern and a white board. A lime­stone border was in­stalled around the class­room, and crushed gran­ite was spread to cover the area. He per­son­ally in­vested more than 100 hours in the project, and more than 500 hours were logged over­all. He will be at­tend­ing the Uni­ver­sity of Mon­tana in the fall.
