Scout’s project promotes sea turtle awareness
“To help other people at all times” is a basic tenet of the Boy Scouts of America. Boy Scout Alex Pulczinski recently had the added bonus of helping sea turtles when he undertook an Eagle Scout service project that benefited the Sea Turtle Preservation Society.
Alex worked with other Scouts and volunteers to build three new display stands for the large sea turtle models in the education center at the Turtle House, three corn hole boards for a sea turtle themed game to be used at educational events, two portable “trash” turtles and a desktop epoxy model that shows how balloons can look like jellyfish in water. Alex chose these items after consulting with STPS Education Director Becky Aud, and he presented his work to the STPS board of directors in December 2019.
Since the inception of the Eagle Scout award in 1912, just two percent of eligible Scouts have earned the organization’s highest honor. To achieve the rank, Scouts must progress through the program and complete requirements focused on leadership, service and outdoor skills. Scouts also must complete a service project.
The board would like to thank Alex for choosing to work with our organization on his service project and congratulate him on the completion of his Eagle Scout requirements.
