Joey’s Eagle project was building a garden for the kindergarten playground at St. Thomas More Catholic Church. The garden beautifies the area and includes signs that identify the plants to educate the kindergarteners. The projects included digging out a dead tree stump, amending the soil, selecting attractive low-maintenance flowers and watering the plants until they were well established. Joey and five Troop 175 volunteers spent more than 50 hours on the project.
Joey Jackson earned the rank of Eagle Scout on January 21, 2014 after 4 years and 8 months as a Scout.
