New Eagle Scouts in Troop 215

Two new Eagle Scouts from Menlo Park Troop 215, Scott Kuhnen and Nicholas Landolfi, were recognized in a Court of Honor on April 20.

Scott, 15, a junior at Menlo-Atherton High School, joined Troop 215 in 2007 and earned 33 merit badges. For his Eagle project, he repainted all the trash cans at Menlo-Atherton High School in school colors. He cleared the plan with the maintenance supervisor and principal, arranged for equipment and supplies, and recruited volunteers to help with the work. The crew painted 87 cans in a maroon color, then stenciled a golden bear paw (sign of the school mascot) on the side of each can.

Nicholas, 16, a senior at Menlo-Atherton High School, also joined Troop 215 in 2007 and earned 34 merit badges. For his Eagle project, he organized and directed 17 volunteers in assembling a set of wooden toy blocks for Shelter Network's Haven Family House in Menlo Park. The volunteers cut, sanded, and oiled 155 blocks of different shapes and sizes. The volunteers also built a shelf for the blocks for the daycare center at Haven House.
