Eagle Scout Project

The Boy Scouts of Troops 502, 521 and 503, in collaboration with the 4-H Sew Cool Needle Nerds Sewing Club of Promise, created sixty-five privacy screens for the special education department.  These screens are used in classrooms to provide privacy from distractions for students with disabilities.  Through resource catalogs, the screens can cost $100 or more, but the Boy Scout troops were able to build the screens for $20 a piece.  Labor for sewing and fabric were donated by the 4-H Sewing Club.

Two boy scouts organized this venture as their Eagle Scout projects.  The Office of Special Education is thrilled to work with both BSA and 4-H.  A GREAT BIG THANKS to both organizations!
