[Troop222All] Congratulations to the latest Troop 222 Eagle Scout! Myles Robinson (with rev)

Myles Robinson is an Eagle Scout – December 21st, 2013
Congratulations, Myles!

Myles Robinson became an Eagle Scout on Saturday morning, December 21st, 2013, at the Palo Alto Boy Scout Service Center in an Eagle Scout Rank Board of Review. We congratulate Myles for reaching this significant milestone of his Scouting journey.

Myles joined Troop 222 in 2007 from Pack 222. He has earned 25 merit badges. His leadership positions within the Troop include Den Chief, Assistant Patrol Leader, and Patrol Leader. He served as both Assistant Senior Patrol Leader and Senior Patrol Leader, working closely with Scoutmaster David Fichou and other Troop Leaders. He became a member of the Order of the Arrow in 2013. He has attended several years of summer scout camp including three years of Camp Oljato. For the past three summers, Myles participated in the leadership training program at Kennoyln Camp in Aptos, CA, culminating in 2013 with a four week stint as a Junior Counselor.  

He has participated in many Fifty Miler backpack trips with Troop 222, including the famous Mount Whitney trip during the summer of 2012 where bridges had to be built to cross several swollen rivers. 

Myles‘s Scout Leadership Service Project was to remove an existing sandbox at the Jean Weingarten Oral School for the Deaf in Redwood City and replace it with a new, composite deck. With the help of many scouts, parents, friends and his family, he completed the demolition and construction over the course of two weekends. During the demolition phase, it was discovered that posts for a future awning needed to be installed before the deck could be built.   Although the additional requirements caused Myles and his team extra work, the project was completed on time and within budget.  Phil Hage and Jay Hansen advised him on his project and Myles consulted with a general contractor Greg Vickerman.  He also benefited from a generous discount on tool rental from AAA Rentals in Redwood City and financial donations from many friends and family members.

Myles is a Senior at Everest High School where he has participated in a number of activities, including the establishment of student government and founding the ultimate frisbee team. This past fall, he was the lead in Grab Bag Theater’s production of “The Importance of Being Ernest”. He intends to pursue an engineering major in college and is in the midst of applying to colleges far and wide.

We thank Duke Evans (Troop 222 Advancement Chair) for coordinating Myles’ Board of Review and also thank the members of the Board, which included Peggy Gluck (Redwood District Eagle Advancement Chair), Thomas Carhart, and Elena Stallings. David Fichou (Troop 222 Scoutmaster) provided the introduction for the candidate. Myles did a great job on this 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. Robinson and his stellar representation of Troop 222.

Myles has been supported by his father Heyward Robinson, mother Joanna Mountain, younger brother Seamus Robinson and the family dog Zoe.

Congratulations again, Myles!
