SCOUTING SMOKE SIGNALS

Nicholas Shultz, son of Dave and Cyndi Shultz, recently earned his Eagle Scout Award with Boy Scout Troop 44, which is located at the corner of Ardmore and Lower Huntington Road. His Eagle Scout Ceremony was held on March 1, 2005 at the Southwest Conservation Club. Nicholas earned his scout badges and Eagle Scout Award under the direction of Scoutmasters: Troy Schlie, Vince Stucker, Jack Shepard, John Mortimer, and Mark Laycoff.

Nicholas worked with Trustees and School Director Ann Chivers from Avalon Missionary Church Preschool to plan and install a playground for the preschool. The Scoutmaster and Boy Scouts from Troop 44, Church Trustees, School Director, and Nick’s family came to help on a Saturday in August to begin digging postholes for the playground fence. It took a good part of the day to dig holes, line up the fence posts, cement the fence posts, and finally install the fence. Avalon Missionary Church Preschool provided lunch for all the workers. On the following Monday Boy Scouts from Troop 44 along with Nicholas’ family spread mulch in the playground area and assembled some Playskool equipment for the playground.

Nicholas joined Cub Scouts in 1998 at Maplewood Elementary School, Pack 3044 under the leadership of Tom Faulkner. He crossed over to Boy Scout Troop 44 in 2000. Since he has been in the Boy Scouts he has had the privilege of learning some valuable life skills, as well as, establishing good relationships with fellow scouts.

Nicholas is a Junior at Wayne High School in the honors program and plans to go onto college, majoring in the dental field. He works part-time at Baker Herbert Analytical Laboratories. He has been a part of the tennis team, soccer team, and volleyball team while at Wayne High School. He is active in the youth group at Avalon Missionary Church and participates in Bible quizzing.
