Andrew Deremer achieves Eagle Scout ranking

Andrew Deremer

Andrew Deremer, representing Carmel Valley Troop 765, recently obtained the ranking of Eagle Scout, the highest honor awarded in the Boy Scout organization. As part of his endeavor, Andrew led his team of fellow scouts in the construction and installation of a kiosk at the San Elijo Lagoon that will enhance the experience for hikers and nature lovers who frequent the park. The project took approximately 370 work hours to complete.

Andrew began his scouting journey five years ago and since that time has earned 36 merit badges in various areas, including first aid, wilderness survival, computer programing, governmental affairs and the Catholic Religious Emblem. He attended the week-long National Youth Leadership camp and has held several leadership positions within the scouting organization, including assistant senior patrol leader, patrol leader and historian.

As part of his scouting adventures, Andrew has climbed to the summit of Mt. Whitney (over 14,000 feet) and Mt. Baldy, and backpacked through New Mexico as part of the 10-day Philmont expedition.

Andrew has also spent numerous hours with community service projects, including Come Build Hope, a three-day house building project in Mexico.

Andrew will be entering his sophomore year at Canyon Crest Academy, where he is a member of the basketball team. He also plays competitive soccer with the DMCV Sharks U16 Blue team.
