Rob Russell ’19 earned the rank of Eagle Scout as a member of Troop 419, completing a service project at Witt Park in the King’s Grant neighborhood of Virginia Beach to reach that milestone achievement.
For his project, Russell, his fellow scouts, and some Norfolk Academy friends removed a tree and three stumps on the property and installed a 25-foot flagpole with a concrete slab at the base. The boys also removed three old benches, installed two new ones, spread seven cubic yards of topsoil on the property, and dispersed bags of seed.
The beautification project at Witt Park will benefit the Kings Grant community in the years ahead.Troop 419 held Rob's Eagle Scout Court of Honor in May at King's Grant Presbyterian Church in Virginia Beach. Congratulations, Rob!
