Troop 810 is pleased to announce another Eagle to our history book.

Rohith’s Eagle Project was a donation drive for the Concord Homeless Shelter. Through his hard work, planning and leadership, he far exceeded the collection goals he originally set.  The reviewers were very impressed and remarked they had never seen such a large amount of items donated nor seen such a large turnout of volunteers for an Eagle Project.  Rohith also did a great job in explaining what scouting means to him and how scouting has made him who he is today.

Congratulations Rohith, Shiny, and Rinly

Scouting Experience
       
            When I first joined Troop 810, scouting was fun, easy and simple. I was active in the troop, went to every meeting, campout, and adventure I was presented with. As I grew older, I had to manage my time between school and family in addition to scouts. Being in a boy led troop, meant my age also determined new levels of responsibility. 
I became Senior Patrol Leader, and scouting seemed increasingly challenging, the demands on me became greater. I was helping organize campouts, helping lead backpacking trips and actually running troop meetings. Somehow, I became a leader and an example for the younger scouts to follow. As I’ve made the transition from following, to leading, I’ve realized growth isn’t always fun, or easy and yet I also knew quitting was not an option. 
Scouting had been good to me, and it was my turn to be good to scouting. Remaining an active scout taught me the importance of mindfulness and responsibility. The older I became, the more I realized the importance of scouting was more than just learning how to do fun things outside. I experienced true growth in scouting by giving back to others in my troop and within my community.
My time in Boy Scouts has been a blessing. I have made relationships that will last a lifetime and I have been places and seen things that I will never forget. Most importantly, I have discovered myself, discovered what I stand for, and discovered the direction in which I want to take my life. While my Eagle project was one of the greatest accomplishments I’ve achieved, I believe the moments and time spent with my friends - my brothers - in Troop 810, have made me the person I am today.

Eagle Project
       
            For my Eagle Scout project I collected over 30 boxes of new and gently used maternity and prenatal items for the local non-profit organization 'Birthright.' I decided on this project because I could relate to it on a personal level. As much as I love babies, I can understand the stresses and hardships that may take place within growing households, particularly when income is an issue. I believe providing relief from stress on single, underprivileged, or new mothers, can provide exponential benefits towards the health of both the mother and the developing baby.
            Looking back, I wee that i invested approximately 95 hours of my time; beginning with meeting with Birthright to ask what they needed, then creating a plan to begin a successful collection project. I then met with Eagle advisors for approval and input on how to improve my plan. This process spanned over several months. I recall being excited to finally begin soliciting donations, collecting, packaging and ultimately delivering many supplies to Birthright. With the help of my school and parish community and upwards of 15 scouts, the collecting and organizing process was much more enjoyable. The most challenging task was managing my crew of scout volunteers and keeping them focused. Since I was Senior Patrol Leader for the group during my project, I was able to use my directing skills, patience, acceptance, and perseverance to help managing the boys.
            Completing my Eagle project was a gift, rather than a chore. It was simple for me to find pride in what I was doing. As I look back, I see many ways in which my Eagle project has helped me grow, in addition to helping Birthright provide care, hope and supplies to many new mothers and babies.
