Eagle Scout Awards Presented
Two local boys completed requirements for their Eagle Scout awards recently.
Will Brower earned his Eagle Scout rank on June 27, and Maxwell Winter was awarded his Eagle Scout rank on May 16. They are both members of Troop No. 808 under the leadership of Scoutmaster Dr. Robert Lutz.
William Brower is the son of Bill Brower and Cathie Ward and is a senior at Pinecrest High School. Brower began Cub Scouting in first grade and chose his Eagle Scout project to benefit the residents of his hometown of Southern Pines.
Under the guidance of his mentor, Wade Young, Brower was able to build a trailhead type of structure in front of the Moore County Coalition for Human Care, in Southern Pines. On the property are community garden beds, and this structure will allow space behind a Plexiglas area for informational fliers for those interested in the different aspects of gardening that the Coalition offers its clients. The front of the structure now helps to identify where the actual Community Gardens at the Coalition are located.
Maxwell Winter is the son of Dr. James and Mrs. Francine Winter and a junior at The O'Neal School. He has been in Scouting for more than eight years. For his Eagle Scout project, Winter created an engineering exploration summer camp for kids ages 7-10. It was run through the Southern Pines Recreation and Parks Department with the assistance of Sue Gillis, the program coordinator. He used a variety of everyday materials to introduce the campers to such fields as aeronautical, civil, structural and mechanical engineering. Donations were collected from local businesses, Duke University School of Engineering, and N.C. State University School of Engineering. The popularity of the 2010 camp prompted a second camp to be added this past summer.
