Grauer Student Achieves Eagle Scout Rank
Congratulations to Grauer senior Bennett P. '19 on being award the rank of Eagle Scout at a special Court of Honor ceremony on Sunday, March 10! This achievement capped his 7 years in Boy Scouts Troop #2000 that has paralleled his time at Grauer. His trail to earning the Eagle rank included taking on several troop leadership positions of increasing responsibility, helping organize and run his Troop’s Haunted Hotel event in Olivenhain, earning many merit badges, and learning skills to be an outdoorsman. Bennett completed a special service project to finalize his Eagle Scout requirements, which included planning, fundraising for, and leading the construction to build a set of playground blocks for the preschool of the Saints Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church that sponsors his troop.
