Ferrari earns Eagle Scout
Kenneth Ferrari earned the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest rank within The Boy Scouts of America. Kenneth is a member of Troop 10, Raleigh.
For his Eagle project, Ferrari built a comfortable area for the teachers of Timber Drive Elementary School to supervise their students while at recess. This area includes shaded park benches along with flowering trees and shrubs.
During his time in Scouting, he led the troop as the Senior Patrol Leader for two years and then took on the role of Chapter Chief, within the Order of the Arrow, and led his local chapter for two years. Ferrari was asked to plan the 2014 Council Camporee. He put together subcommittees with the goal of increasing interest in the camporee.
Two years of planning resulted in a record attendance of 1,800 people and the consensus that it set the bar which future camporees will strive to reach.
