Scout's bridge allows easier access to school, greenway

December 9, 2012 

Eric K. Sommers of Raleigh has earned the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest achievement in Boy Scouting.

For his Eagle project, Eric built a pedestrian bridge at Durant Road Middle School that allows students from the adjacent neighborhood to safely cross a stream while walking to school and residents to safely access the Raleigh Greenway trail behind the school.

Eric, the son of Kevin R. and the late Jennifer W. Sommers, is a junior at Millbrook High School and a member of Troop 364 at Pleasant Grove United Methodist Church.
