The Advance of Bucks County - - PEOPLE -

WRIGHT­STOWN - Troy Smith, the son of hevin and gane Smith of Wright­stown, re­cently achieved the rank of bagle Scout.

Smith’s bagle Scout project was com­pleted in the Penns­bury School District at jake­field ble­men­tary School in iower jake­field.

With the help of Boy Scout Troop NM, Troy built an NN by NU foot per­gola in the cen­ter of the school’s iearn­ing Garden. It was de­signed and built to pro­vide par­tial shade and a com­fort­able out­door class­room where stu­dents will learn about agri­cul­ture.

Su­san jead jazz­itelli, chair­per­son of the jake­field iearn­ing Garden, has plenty of ac­co­lades for the Scout.

“jr. Smith did an amaz­ing job de­sign­ing, fundrais­ing, se­cur­ing ma­te­ri­als then build­ing the per­gola,” she said. “The per­gola was built with the high­est qual­ity in mind and pro­fes­sion­al­ism. We are pleased with the project and will en­joy it for years to come.”

Smith re­ceived spe­cial ban­ners from Prin­ci­pal aonna jcCormick­jiller. They were cre­ated and signed by the stu­dents and cov­ered by flow­ers thank­ing him for the per­gola.

Smith is a mem­ber of Boy Scout Troop NM, iower jake­field, a ju­nior at Holy Ghost Prepara­tory School and an ac­tive mem­ber of Saint An­drew Church Par­ish in New­town Town­ship. He is an al­tar server at the church.

At Holy Ghost Prep, Smith is in­volved in the Cook­ing Club and jath­letes.

In Troop NM, Smith has held numer­ous lead­er­ship rolesW his­to­rian, li­brar­ian, as­sis­tant pa­trol leader, pa­trol leader and troop guide. He as­sisted his fel­low scouts with NT bagle projects and numer­ous com­mu­nity ser­vice projects.

Re­cently, Smith co­or­di­nated and par­tic­i­pated in a veter­ans’ me­mo­rial and a flag re­tire­ment cer­e­mony at the Wright­stown Town­ship Build­ing. His scout­ing involvement ex­tends to the Brother­hood in the Or­der of the Ar­row. He achieved Ad Altare aei, World Con­ser­va­tion Award and at­tended Philmont Scout Ranch in New jex­ico in 2MNN.
