Solana Beach Boy Scout Troop 782 celebrated an Eagle Court of Honor Feb. 1 at Solana Beach Presbyterian Church for five of its most recent Eagle Scouts: Michael Broussalian, Ryan Murphy, Jackson Backer, Charles Molitor, and Robert Oliver Roberts.  Parents, grandparents, siblings, relatives, local officials, fellow scouts, and friends of the young men attended the ceremony.

One of the most important steps to becoming an Eagle Scout is the development, preparation, and execution of an “Eagle Project,” a service- and leadership-oriented project that benefits the community, a religious institution, or a school.  Each Scout completes a detailed proposal that must be approved by the troop, unit leader and committee, and district council before he begins.  During all phases of the project, the Scout must maintain a meticulously organized binder that demonstrates his attention to all aspects of the project from inception to completion. Below is information about the Scouts and their Eagle projects:

Jackson Backer constructed a large kiosk near the entrance of the upper portion of San Dieguito County Park in June 2013.  The structure contains a large, covered bulletin board for park rangers to post park information and announcements.  It includes a large, covered bench overlooking a beautiful vista of Rancho Santa Fe.

Michael Broussalian built and installed a kiosk for Goodan Ranch in Sycamore Canyon in June 2013. The structure contains a large, covered bulletin board for park rangers to post park information and announcements.

Charles Molitor built and installed a kiosk for the entrance of Lower San Dieguito Park. The project was completed in July 2013.

Ryan Murphy constructed and installed a new sign for the San Dieguito River Park headquarters, and planted a garden of native plants surrounding the sign. The project was completed in November 2013.

Robert Roberts renovated the exterior landscaping and added new planters and plants at the San Diego Rescue Mission.  The project was completed in June 2013.

Reaching this milestone represents the successful achievement of many years of dedicated effort and commitment that started when a youth becomes a Boy Scout, usually at age 11. Less than 7 percent of all Boy Scouts reach the Eagle Rank, which is the highest rank advancement in the organization.
