Sophomore James Lindquist Achieves Rank of Eagle Scout

Sophomore James Lindquist has achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. Lindquist is a member of the BSA Troop 50, which is sponsored by University United Methodist Church.

To earn this rank, a Scout must progress through six ranks, earn a minimum of 21 merit badges, serve in several leadership positions within his troop and provide service to the community. In addition, a Scout must plan, develop and give leadership to a service project for a religious or community organization.

For his Eagle Scout project, Lindquist planned and constructed five raised garden beds and a toolbox for use in the PreK curriculum at Trinity Episcopal Day School in Baton Rouge.
