Michael’s project consisted of clearing the area of weeds and debris prior to constructing the compost bin, plus the addition of water-tolerant plants for beautification. Twenty-five volunteers from Troop 765 also participated in the endeavor, and more than 200 hours went into the project that Michael supervised.

Michael started as a Tiger Cub in Pack 720 and earned his Arrow of Light before joining Troop 765 in 2005. Michael has held offices in the troop as Senior Patrol Leader, Patrol Leader, Troop Guide, Troop Instructor and, most recently, as the SPL for the troop’s Hawaiian Adventure at Camp Pupukea last summer. Michael has earned 43 merit badges, participated in over 75 nights of camping and contributed over 200 hours in community service projects. Michael is also a member of Crew 42, the coed high adventure arm of the scouting program. Michael enjoys camping, cooking, and rifle and shotgun shooting, earning various awards from the Winchester National Rifle Association.

Michael will be attending his seventh summer scout camp this year at Emerald Bay Scout Camp, Catalina, as a Boy Scout, but will be leaving as an Assistant Scoutmaster of Troop 765 as he turns 18 while at camp. He plans on pursuing a career in culinary arts after graduation in June. Michael’s Eagle Court of Honor will take place on May 5 at Torrey Pines High School.
