Third in Family Becomes Eagle Scout

Third in Family Becomes Eagle Scout

 

Congratulations to MPCS senior Hunter Nasrallah, who recently earned his Eagle Scout badge with Troop 287 at Saint Joseph’s Catholic Church. Notably, Hunter joins his brothers, Peake and Riley, both MPCS alumni who also reached this pinnacle achievement.

For his Eagle Project, Hunter planned and built a playground at his church, St. Basil’s Orthodox Church in Marietta. The idea was born from the need the church had for the playground and came at the request of the church. 

From start to finish, Hunter spent more than 60 hours on the project, raising the necessary funds; working through zoning, setbacks, and applications for permits; and scheduling and managing two work days at the church. Hunter supervised approximately 10-15 other Scouts and adults who volunteered to work preparing the grounds and building the playground. He diligently completed and filed all reports associated with the project with the Boy Scouts of America.

Mathew Nasrallah, Hunter’s father, shared that the second work day was particularly challenging, as it snowed that morning.  He says, “Hunter pushed through and encouraged those who showed up to help.” The project was planned and built during Hunter’s junior year at MPCS. The construction phase of the project occurred during the spring baseball season - an added challenge for Hunter, an MPC baseball player who found MPC Baseball Coach Kyle Reece to be both understanding and supportive of Hunter’s involvement in the project. 

About the Eagle Scout Rank

The Eagle Scout Rank requires a minimum of 21 merit badges completed, as well as steady progression through various ranks, ending with Star, Life, and then Eagle. Each of these ranks requires much of the Scout in the areas of leadership within the troop, service to the community, demonstration of proficiency in various outdoor and camping skills, community involvement, and familiarity with the workings of local government. For each advancement, the Scout must pass a Board of Review, culminating with the Eagle Board of Review. All of this must be accomplished prior to the young man reaching the age of 18.
