New Eagle Scouts in Troop 109

Menlo Park Boy Scouts of America Troop 109 will host an Eagle Court of Honor for four young men at 1 p.m. Sunday, June 9, at the Palo Alto Scout Center, 1305 Middlefield Road, in Palo Alto. Those honored will include:

Kevin Shimbo, 14, a sophomore at Menlo-Atherton High School who earned 24 merit badges and completed his Eagle project titled "An Aviary for the SPCA." The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals needed an aviary to help birds recuperate until they could be released safely into the wild. Kevin organized construction of the structure with help from Troop 109 scouts and friends.

Thomas Liggett, 18, a senior at Menlo-Atherton High School who earned 21 merit badges and constructed bulletin boards for the Ravenswood City School District as his Eagle project. He led a team of volunteers to design and install the bulletin boards at elementary schools in East Palo Alto and Menlo Park to assist communication with families.

Jeremy Chow, 17, a senior at M-A who earned 27 merit badges and completed a mural at Belle Haven School as his Eagle project. He organized a team to create the mural to inspire leadership and aspirations for students to achieve higher education.

Christopher Scherm, 17, a senior at M-A who earned 21 merit badges. His Eagle project was creating wheelchair-accessible raised planter beds at the VA in Menlo Park so those in wheelchairs could enjoy gardening.
