Scout: Thomas J. Walden

Project: Landscaping at St.Augustine’s Church

Thomas J. Walden began his career in Scouting as a Tiger Cub Scout in 2000, and crossed over into Troop 44 in March of 2005. As a member of Troop 44, he served as as Den Chief, Patrol Leader, Assistant Senior Patrol Leader, Senior Patrol Leader, Troop Guide, and Instructor. In addition, TJ was elected to the Order of the Arrow and achieved Brotherhood status.

TJ achieved the rank of Eagle Scout just before his 16th birthday. For his Eagle Scout leadership service project, he and many volunteers from the troop removed an unsightly, overgrown garden at his church, St.Augustine’s in Millville. The area was then replanted with an attractive, low maintenance garden.
