Michael White, 18, recently received Scouting’s highest rank of Eagle Scout.

White is a member of Troop 99 chartered by First Christian Church and currently attends Greencastle High School.

Involved in Scouting for 10 years, White achieved the Eagle rank after demonstrating leadership as a patrol leader, instructor and junior assistant scoutmaster.

For his Eagle Scout Service Project, White planned, developed and led others to construct two requested projects for Beyond Homeless.

The first project was a shed to house outdoor toys at the homeless shelter, while the second was a bench for the Thrift Shop.

The shed will protect toys as well as help reduce clutter on the playground. The bench provides a needed sitting space at the resale shop in the old Monon Restaurant building on North Jackson Street.

To raise money for his project White applied and presented for a grant from the Putnam County Community Foundation’s Youth Philanthropy Committee.

Ten volunteers dedicated their time and talent to assist White in completing his service project from Jan. 27-March 11.

Only four percent of Scouting’s national membership attains the rank of Eagle.
