Fremont Scout receives highest award
by Denise Rousseau
Sean Rousseau, a sophomore at Irvington High School, in Fremont received scouting's highest award at a Court of Honor on Saturday, Nov. 18. He is a member of Troop 132, sponsored by Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Fremont.
Sean is the son of Steve and Denise Rousseau. Special out-of-town guests in attendance were Rick and Diane Holtz of St. Louis, Missouri, and Sean's grandmother, Carol Rousseau of Sunnyvale.
For his Eagle Project, Sean built 22 migratory bird-nesting boxes for the Fremont's Parks and Recreation Department. This project took considerable time to plan and execute. It required him to coordinate the project with a park ranger, procure material donations, supervise scout construction, and prepare detailed reports documenting the entire process.
Sean has held a variety of leadership positions in Boy Scouts, earning 36 merit badges, and has been a member of the troop for five years.
