The Name

Earning the rank of Eagle Scout among Boy Scout troops is quite an honor. Holy Name is proud to have four Eagle Scouts in the senior class this year.

Matt Brown received his Eagle Scout a few months ago and said, “ Receiving your Eagle Scout is a nationally recognized accomplishment. It is a respected honor that also looks great on college applications.”

Matt is a member of troop 371 through Holy Family in Parma. His project was restoring the York Street cemetery at York Road and Pleasant Valley Road. He weeded the areas around tombstones and uprooted the dead trees there. He put down new mulch and planted flowers as well as stained the fence surrounding the cemetery.

pJordan Blazak is a member of troop 526 in North Royalton. His project was restoring the outdoor area of the Battered Women and Children Shelter at the West Side Catholic Center. There is a deck in the back where the women sit and watch their children play. Jordan restored and stained the fence surrounding the backyard to match this deck. He also built storage bins for the children to keep their toys in overnight. He then proceeded to build three flower boxes three feet tall for the women to garden in.

Brian O’Donnell is a member of troop 190 in Seven Hills. His project was beautifying Tappan Lake Park in Seven Hills. He used new wood, as well as the good wood left from the broken down benches at the park, to build fourteen new picnic tables. He also cleaned up two trash bags full of litter.

Chris Hudak is a member of troop 652 in Brecksville. His project consisted of painting a meeting room at Mary Queen of Peace. He also put in noise reduction panels on the walls.

Congratulations to all Eagle Scouts and good luck in your future endeavors!
