Jack Brandt of Auburn Boy Scout Troop 401 recently earned the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout, something achieved by fewer than 5 percent of all Scouts.
Jack, son of Jason and Kerry Brandt, is a student at Auburn Riverside High School.
Brandt’s Eagle Scout project involved the planting of more than 800 trees, shrubs and grass at the Auburn Library.
All Eagle projects involve identifying a need in the community, obtaining approval as a qualifying Eagle Scout project, obtaining approval of the benefiting organization, planning, funding, scheduling, managing, executing the project and reporting back. The project itself is beneficial to others.
Brandt’s official Eagle Court of Honor ceremony is June 15 at the Game Farm Wilderness Park Group Campsite.
