Serve Daily - - FRONT PAGE -

Spencer Marvin, a ninth-grade stu­dent at Salem Ju­nior High School, has or­ga­nized the con­struc­tion of a track and field dis­cus ring at his school as his Ea­gle Scout Project. “I was re­ally im­pressed with how he just took off and went,” said SaJHS Head Track and Field Coach Jor­dan Blan­chard. Spencer or­ga­nized the dis­cus ring’s de­sign, mea­sured and sur­veyed, se­cured do­na­tions and ma­te­ri­als, and over­saw skilled la­bor to com­plete the project prop­erly. He was in­tro­duced to a cheer­ing team of 200 SaJHS track and field ath­letes last Mon­day who thanked him for his ef­forts. Throws Coach Rockie Beatty added, “The great thing about his project is that it will ben­e­fit so many ath­letes for years to come.”
