Boy Scout Landscapes His Old School

Eighth-grader Christian Chellis replaced the landscaping outside his old elementary school for his Eagle Scout project.

As part of his quest to become an Eagle Scout, student Christian Chellis relandscaped the front of , where he’d been a student.

“I wanted to improve it, so I did,” Christian said. “It took me a while to plan it. I came up with a landscape plan on how it should be.”

Christian and 12 other scouts from Troop 661 removed the old landscaping from the front of the building and replaced it with new plants and mulch. They also put in a new path around the flagpole.

Christian said he knew replacing the landscaping would help because the school couldn’t afford to do it the way he did.

Point Mother’s Club and Ideal Landscape Group supported Christian’s project.

Christian said he wants to be an Eagle Scout “because it is the highest rank in Boy Scouts.”
