Eagle Scout Project Gives DC A New Look
When you arrive on campus tomorrow for the first day of school, make sure you notice the new landscaping in front of our main entrance! Junior Seth Withers led 18 members of Boy Scout Troop 103 as they worked to pull out old shrubs, extend the landscape bed, and plant trees and flowers this past Saturday in an effort to complete his Eagle Scout project on our DC campus.
“I wanted to do something to improve the appearance of the school and especially that front landscape bed,” said Withers. “There were overgrown bushes and flowers that bloomed in the summer, not during the spring and fall when everyone could enjoy them.”
Completing an Eagle Scout project is a huge undertaking involving planning the project as well as its financing, fundraising, purchasing supplies, rounding up volunteers, and, of course, the actual work itself. Dayton Christian School is truly thankful for Seth’s efforts. The front of our building looks amazing!
DC and the Boy Scouts – specifically Eagle Scouts — have enjoyed a very positive relationship. Nine members of last year’s graduating class were Eagle Scouts – that’s twenty percent of the males in the class! In addition, seven Eagle Scout projects have been completed on our campus.
In addition to Seth’s landscaping project, the following Eagle Scouts have completed projects here at DC:
- Matthew Kuhn (16) planted a rain garden in the courtyard.
- Micah Withers (16) planted nineteen trees around the elementary playground.
- Brandon Bower (17) built the pitching bullpens at the baseball field.
- Chad Maynor (17) constructed the helmet racks inside the dugouts.
- David Zimmer (17) built player storage boxes inside the dugouts.
- Andrew Lutey (17) was responsible for the benches in the baseball dugouts.
Thank you to all of our DC Eagle Scouts who have opted to benefit our school through your Eagle Scout projects!
