Freshman Jack Blacker, from Boy Scout Troop 577, made Eagle Scout on Feb. 16, completing the requirements for his beautification project at Reinhardt Elementary School. Reinhardt is a low-income school in East Dallas with a large population of ESL students. Jack had completed his eighth-grade service learning literacy project at Reinhardt and wanted to do something special for the school. He devised a plan, along with the principal, to provide better curb appeal and help boost school pride. In addition to these projects, Jack hiked at Philmont Scout Ranch last year and will be sailing at Florida Sea Base this summer.
