[Troop222All] Congratulations to the latest Troop 222 Eagle Scout! David Dillon

Right after AJ Connell’s board of review we had David Dillon’s.  David earned his rank one hour after AJ, so that puts AJ in the front of David when it comes time to line up based on date of rank… 
David Dillon is an Eagle Scout – September 24th, 2013
Congratulations, David!

David Dillon became an Eagle Scout on Tuesday evening, September 24th, 2013, at the Palo Alto Boy Scout Service Center in an Eagle Scout Rank Board of Review. We congratulate David for reaching this significant milestone of his Scouting journey.

David joined Troop 222 in 2007 after attending a slide show night. He has earned 30 merit badges. His leadership positions within the Troop include serving as Den Chief, Patrol Leader, Quartermaster,  and Senior Patrol Leader working with Scoutmaster Tom Carhart.  He has attended several years of summer camp including Camp Emerald Bay in 2009, Camp Chawanakee in 2010, Camp Oljato in 2011.  

He has participated in many Fifty Miler backpack trips with Troop 222, including Whitney and the Tahoe Rim Trail in 2011 and 2012,  and a Philmont trek during the sumer of 2013 as a proud member of Crew 3. 

David‘s Scout Leadership Service Project involved refurbishing a ramp for the BOK ranch that is utilized to get kids and adults with special needs on and off of the horses at the ranch.  Founded in 1985, the B.O.K. Ranch Therapeutic Horseback Riding Program is dedicated to providing horseback riding lessons to children and adults with special needs.  Expert help and advice were provided by Eagle Committee Chair, Phil Hage and Gary Peterson, his Eagle Project Adviser.

David graduated Menlo Atherton High School last June where he participated on the Cross Country and Track teams.  This past week he started school at UC Santa Cruz in Crown College.  

We thank Duke Evans (Troop 222 Advancement Chair) for coordinating David’s Board of Review and also thank the members of the Board, which included Peggy Gluck (Redwood District Eagle Advancement Chair), David You (Redwood District Eagle Advisor), Ken Johnson, and Roy Thiele-Sardina. David Fichou (Troop 222 Scoutmaster) provided the introduction for the candidate. David did a great job on this final step in his journey to Eagle Scout. The board was very impressed with him and his thoughtful answers to their questions. As his scoutmaster, I was very proud of Mr. Dillon and his stellar representation of Troop 222.

David has been supported by his father Davin and Janell McClung.

Congratulations again, David!
