Scouts Recognized

Wayne Howard
Staff Writer

Occasionally, the Lincoln County Commissioners recognize someone for an accomplishment that benefits the community. It's fairly common for them to recognize an Eagle Scout for achieving that designation. Sometimes they recognize two; but this past Monday night (Nov. 19th), they recognized five Eagle Scouts who are members of Troop #84.

Troop 84 was chartered by Denver United Methodist Church in March 2011 to serve scouts from East Lincoln and North Lincoln Middle schools, Lincoln Charter School at Denver, and Southlake Christian Academy. They have served the community by cleaning up an outdoor area garden path at Denver UMC, working at Denver Days, and helping with games and crafts at a local fall festival. Rich Zimmerman is the Scoutmaster for Troop 84.

The five recognized Monday night for their Eagle Scout projects, completed with the help of fellow scouts) were:

  • Adam Henderson--whose Eagle Scout project was building and installing stairs and a new door at the North Lincoln High School Band's storage trailer
  • Joshua Fesmire--whose project was cleaning and organizing the memorabilia and artifacts at the Lincolnton American Legion Post 30 Legion Hall
  • Edouard Nadra--who built and installed picnic benches at East Lincoln Charter School's Denver campus
  • Trevor Kitsinia--who built and installed recycling stations on the sports fields at Lincoln Charter School in Denver
  • Jake Zimmerman--who cleaned and revitalized a courtyard off the school library at East Lincoln Middle School and installed window film to prevent glare in the library and adjacent classrooms.

County Commission Chairman Bill Beam noted their accomplishments and added, "a lot of people talk about how today's kids do bad things. Some do, but most don't--and these young men are the kind of kids who will someday be leaders in our community or wherever they choose to live. I commend them on their dedication and thank their parents and Scout leaders for helping them to achieve Scouting's highest rank."
