Scout: Moritz Schmid

Project: Picnic tables

Moritz began his career in Scouting as a Tiger Cub Scout in 1996. He crossed over into Troop1 Mendon in March 2001, then joined Troop 44 in 2006. Moritz served as a patrol leader and senior patrol leader. Moritz was also elected to the Order of the Arrow and served as Lodge Chief.

For his Eagle Service Project Moritz built six picnic tables for the Clough Elementary School in Mendon. The project started by talking to the principal and figuring out what he wanted for the school. It was agreed to make a maximum of six picnic tables out of a plastic composite wood. Over the next few months a number of car wash fundraisers were held in mid-winter in order to raise the money for the tables. The supplies were bought in early April, and the tables were constructed in May with the help of Troop 44 parents and Scouts.
