An active member of the Boy Scouts of America since age 9, Heritage Hall sophomore Charlie Ghaniabadi recently attained the rank of Eagle Scout, the program’s highest achievement.
Among the requirements to obtain an Eagle rank, candidates must demonstrate leadership through successfully planning, developing, and executing a service project. Seeking an opportunity that would benefit inner city youth at Shiloh Camp, Ghaniabadi designed and built a new storage shed for the camp. Several fellow scouts assisted Ghaniabadi in the construction phase of the project.
“Shiloh is a place where kids create incredible memories. To enhance the outdoor experience, I wanted to provide the camp a well-built shed with adequate storage space for items such as fishing rods and bait,” Ghaniabadi explained.
During his years-long pursuit of Eagle, Ghaniabadi earned 28 merit badges, along with numerous awards and honors. Additionally, he demonstrated a range of skill sets in his roles as quartermaster and troop guide, and during camping adventures in Arkansas, Colorado, Minnesota, Oklahoma, and the Bahamas.
