I'm an Eagle!

I had my board of review last night, right after I played football, beating Mountain View by 40 points.  I had a couple of tackles and played a hard game, so I was a bit tired when I got to my board at 8:30 p.m.

The Hobble Creek District does an amazing job making sure their Eagles are prepared.  I met with 3 men who interviewed me about my project.  They asked a lot of questions about me, about my project and about being an Eagle.  I agreed to continue to live up to the expectation of being someone who stands out from the crowd, because of the way I live.

The other scout leaders at the board were interested in my project and asked a lot of questions about it.  The best thing of the night was the huge cookie with my name on it!

My Eagle Project highlighted in the Daily Herald

I was able to talk to a reporter from the Daily Herald last week.  She asked me about my project and put some of our conversation in this article that appeared in the Daily Herald on Saturday, August 15th.

I finished my Eagle Project!!!

I finished my Eagle Project on Thursday, July 23rd by unveiling a new informational kiosk at Lower Hobble Creek in Springville.  The kiosk and sign look great.  My friends at the DWR say they are pleased with how the kiosk and sign turned out.  I would like to thank all of the people who helped donate time, resources, money, and those who helped me recycle metal, and who helped guide me on my project!

I wrote down some things that I said at the unveiling of my Eagle Project kiosk and sign:

People who I would like to thank,  Jackie Watson: she's a DWR biologist who helped start the kiosk/sign idea. Mike Mills of JSRIP who matched the funds we raised.  Scott Root of DWR who provided guidance, June Standley who donated her time to design the sign, and all the other people who gave money and helped me with this project. Mainly my dad he kept me on track to get this project Finished.

So how I got started on the Eagle Project was when My dad and I were bow-fishing underneath this bridge. It was dark so I couldn't really see anything. I thought  I saw a carp in the water so I shot at it. Instead of a carp, of course it was a June Sucker. We didn't know at first what type of fish it was. So we called the DNR and we figured out the fish and we decided to make awareness for the fish. And that's how it all happened.

Thank you for coming.

June sucker kiosk and sign unveiling

The public is invited to come see the June sucker kiosk and sign on Thursday, July 23rd at 4:00 p.m. at the Lower Hobble Creek Wildlife Management Area, just west of I-15 on the frontage road (about 1200 North and 2000 West in Springville).

There will be June sucker stickers for everyone who attends!  Thanks for all who helped me with my Eagle Project!

Kiosk is ready!

We picked up the kiosk from Allied Electric Sign yesterday.  It's made of aluminum, has a Plexiglas front to protect the sign and is keyed for security.  The guys at the sign company were very helpful getting the sign into my dad's trailer.  It's nice that the sign company is so close in Springville.

Kiosk Building Phase of my project

Kiosk being built in the Allied Sign shop.
We put a down payment on the kiosk with the funds we raised and construction has started.  We stopped by Allied Sign in Springville to check on some plans and they let us see the kiosk being built.  The kiosk is built to last, made of sturdy aluminum.  It will have a Plexiglas cover to protect the sign.  We hope to have the kiosk ready to install by this Saturday.  You are welcome to come help at 6:00 p.m. at Lower Hobble Creek.
