Eagle Scout Focuses on HVP Project
Longtime HVP resident Peggy Jones has fond childhood memories of making a path to Big Walnut Park from her home at the end of a dead end on 19th. The path, which connects the neighborhoods of High View Park and Tara Leeway, had fallen into disrepair and now was nothing more than some rotting stairs on dirt.
Recently, Peggy noticed some activity around the path and upon investigating learned that it was being reconstructed by Yorktown High School senior Brandon Scott. Brandon, a Boy Scout with Troop 638, had decided to reconstruct the path as part of his Eagle Scout requirement.
When asked why he chose this as his project, Brandon commented:
After graduating from high school, Brandon plans to attend the Coast Guard Academy.
