Nine members of Los Altos Troop 30 have attained the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest rank in Boy Scouting.

The new Eagle Scouts and their projects:

• Brad Huwe of Mountain View, a freshman at Sonoma State University, coordinated a team in constructing a Native American shelter in the Ohlone Village at Rancho San Antonio County Park. The shelter is designed to educate elementary school students about the lives and culture of the indigenous tribe.

• Samir Joshi of Los Altos, a senior at Mountain View High, led a group in building cubbies, benches and hanging space in the theater at St. Francis High.

• Randy Kenyon of Mountain View, a senior at Mountain View High, oversaw a team in constructing an information kiosk for Loyola School to provide a place to post school and community information.

• Chris Krupa of Mountain View, a senior at Mountain View High, led a team in renewing and beautifying the front of the Community Services Agency on Stierlin Road in Mountain View. The group restriped the parking lot, refinished benches and planted new vegetation.

• Kelly McConnell of Los Altos, a senior at Los Altos High, oversaw a group of fellow scouts in constructing a ball pit for the Gardner Bullis School playground. The school uses the ball pit for PE classes and free play.

• Alex Mirov of Los Altos, a senior at Homestead High, managed a team that demolished the old 14-foot gate at Deer Hollow Farm and constructed a new one to allow safer and easier access to the re-created Ohlone Village.

• Brett Nelson of Los Altos, a senior at Homestead High, supervised construction of a large toy shed for Family & Children Services in San Jose. His team replaced aging, worn-out crates with a shed that better protects the contents and provides additional storage space.

• Stephen Strawbridge of Los Altos, a senior at Homestead High, led a team in building two compost structures for Cupertino Middle School’s Garden Club.

• Craig Young of Los Altos, a senior at Homestead High, supervised a team that built a set of wood and concrete field dirt storage bins at Covington School for Los Altos-Mountain View PONY Baseball to hold various types of dirt used to maintain the baseball diamond.
