Eagle Scout & Gold Award Community Service Projects

Posted on August 28, 2017

Two of the highest honors for the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts are the Eagle Scout rank and Gold Award, respectively. Attaining these prestigious achievements not only requires dedication and hard work from the scouts, but also stresses the importance of community service through projects. 

At Penn High School, we encourage student participation in community service through project-based learning. It’s always gratifying when the students then apply these concepts in their own activities outside of school.

Last school year, nine Penn High School students (five graduates and four current students) gave back to their community on their way to achieving their Eagle Scout rank and Gold Awards.  In this latest example of #PHMExcellence, the students walk us through their community service projects at Prairie Vista and Madison Elementary Schools, and at Birch Lake in Vandalia, Michigan.
