Menlo Park Eagle Scouts to be honored Jan. 9


Robert Lane and Anders Chiang have earned the rank of Eagle Scout and will be recognized at a Court of Honor Jan. 9 at Menlo Park Presbyterian Church.

Robert, 17, is the son of David and Grayson Lane of Menlo Park. A senior at Menlo-Atherton High School, he entered scouting as a Bobcat in Pack 222 in 2004. Robert has earned 24 merit badges. For his Eagle leadership project, he and a team of 25 volunteers built steps and restored an outdoor stage at the East Palo Alto Charter School.

A member of the National Honor Society, varsity cross country, and lacrosse teams, Robert plans to study aerospace engineering at Duke University in the fall of 2016.

Anders is the son of Eugene and Laurie Chiang of Menlo Park. A junior at Menlo-Atherton High School, he started scouting as a Bobcat in Rockwall, Texas, in 2005. After moving to Menlo Park in 2006, he earned 35 merit badges with Troop 222.

He completed his Eagle Scout service project by leading a team of 13 volunteers in implementing an emergency evacuation plan for the Children's Ministry at Menlo Park Presbyterian Church. Ander's emergency evacuation plan, representing more than 156 hours of volunteer work, will provide for the safety of nearly 500 children who attend at any given service.
