Two Wake County Boy Scouts have attained the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest achievement in Boy Scouting.
Here is what they did for their projects:
• Joey Casadonte of Raleigh replaced an old toy storage shed at the St. Philip Lutheran Preschool on Falls of Neuse Road in Raleigh with a new, larger shed that better accommodates the outdoor toys used on the playground.
Joey, who earned 27 merit badges, was a member of Troop 314 at St. Raphael Catholic Church in Raleigh.
He is a graduate of Millbrook High School and a freshman at East Carolina University. He is the son of Paul and Kathy Casadonte.
• Andrew Fiorentino of Apex worked with the principal and assistant principal of Baucom Elementary School in Apex to design a welcome sign that matches the school’s color scheme.
He presented the design to Larry High, who owns a CNC machine and worked with Andrew to input the plans and dimensions of the sign panel.
Andrew assembled and painted the sign. With the help of volunteers, Andrew installed the sign and planted bushes and flowers around it.
Andrew has earned 25 merit badges and is a member of Boy Scout Troop 316.
He is the son of Debra and Greg Fiorentino and a senior at Apex High School.
