  • Eagle Project Opportunity

    • The principal of Nelson Elementary School in TUSD has reached out to our troop to find out if any Life Scouts are looking for ideas for Eagle Projects that can benefit their school. They have project ideas supporting literacy, safety, beautification, or athletics. 

    • If any life scout is interested in learning more, please email me and I will provide you the contact information for next steps.
