Troop 33 honors new Eagle Scouts

Los Altos Troop 33 recently awarded the Eagle rank to four sophomores at Los Altos High School and a senior at Fremont High.

To earn the Eagle designation, a scout must plan, develop and lead a team in a service project that benefits a religious institution, school or community.

• Michael Basset built four “micro-libraries” and a map house for the YMCA’s Camp Campbell in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

• Jeremy Bonte worked with animal organizations like Marin’s Marine Mammal Center to create a website to showcase animal volunteer opportunities in the Bay Area.

• Travis Mayer installed 300 outdoor wall-mounted hooks for Egan Junior High School students to hang their backpacks.

• Ashwin Krishna formed and guided a classical guitar quartet – AGQ – to perform for Western Ballet’s “Nutcracker” productions during the 2012 holiday season.

• Mayer Feldman of Sunnyvale hosted a water polo clinic for teenagers in his community to promote teamwork and scout ideology and to create awareness for the sport.
