Jack Venden – Eagle Scout project benefits St. Joseph

Jack completed his Eagle Project in the summer of 2013. When he was looking for a project, it was important to him to do something that would benefit St. Joseph School. He met with Mrs. Antes and they decided to have him build a gate that would block cars from driving through the back parking lot during recess times. He was excited about doing this for the school as he had to always keep an eye out for cars during lunch recess as a student. Jack designed a gate that he thought would work the best for the space and had it approved by Mrs. Antes. Jack and some of his friends, including former St. Joseph's students Matthew Boss, Daniel Garcia, Griffin Miller, and Lucas Skaras spent several days constructing and installing the gate. St. Joseph parent, Clarissa Preston, helped get materials donated by Home Depot. Jack graduates from Jesuit this year and will be attending Virginia Military Institute in the fall.

Will Venden – Eagle Scout project benefits St. Joseph

Will was a high school student at Cistercian when he completed his Eagle Scout Project for the school and parish. The St. Joe's athletic field had just been completed, so Will met with Monsignor Don and developed a landscape plan for the area around the bleachers. They decided on Holly bushes and oak trees. Bruce Miller Landscape Nursery provided all the plants and mulch. It was considered a sizable task for an Eagle project. Other scouts from his troop, friends, classmates, and even the two French exchange students, who were staying with his family at the time, all pitched in to place the plants, dig the holes, and plant the large bushes and trees. Will is currently entering his senior year at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY.
