On February 11, 2018, Boy Scout Troop 2950 honored its newest Eagle Scouts – Thomas Hess and Noah Mamula. The Eagle Scout Award represents the culmination of years of dedication and hard work for both of these young men.
Thomas started his scout career originally with his grandfather, Thomas Plevyak, who took him to Cub Scout meetings, campouts, and events. Tom joined Troop 2950 in 2012 and brought energy and optimism to the troop. He enjoyed all the service projects, fundraisers, but especially the camping and hiking trips. Ask Tom about his Goshen Scout Reservation experience and you will be blown away by this young man’s dedication to others and self. For his Eagle Scout project, Tom painted the American Legion Hall in Middleburg.
Noah’s scouting experience started in the fourth grade as both a Cub Scout and an honorary Boy Scout. When Noah’s parents started the Troop in 2008, he was involved from the start, even though not old enough yet to be a Boy Scout. Noah loves the outdoors, and for him, the best part of scouting is working with the younger scouts teaching them new skills. Noah’s Eagle project was coordinating the building of an Outdoor Classroom at the Middleburg Community Charter School. He also designed/directed the repairs for the Blue Bridge on the Wankopin Creek Trail.
Troop 2950 is very proud of these new Eagle’s and we wish them much success in all their future endeavors.
