Troop 600 scouts become Eagles
Two founders of troop 600 have received the highest Boy Scout rank, Eagle. Jujhar Parmar, 16, and Ajit Parmar, 14, two of seven founders of the troop, started scouting in the summer of 2009. They were both awarded the rank of Eagle on August 14, 2012.
An Eagle Project is one of the hardest tasks and requirements to attain the rank of Eagle. It demonstrates leadership and completion of a complex task.
Jujhar constructed a bench along a hiking trail at Alum Rock Park. He noticed that hikers had no place to rest. People suggested a bench would be appropriate and Jujhar liked the idea. The result is a gift to all who use the trail. Jujhar really enjoyed building the bench and helping the community.
Ajit built two benches near the basketball courts at Centerville Junior High School in Fremont. When games were played, students didn't have a place to sit; all had to stand when watching games. Following his Eagle project, students can now sit as they watch the games and in the morning when waiting for school to start.
Congratulations to these new Eagle Scouts of Troop 600!
