Jimmy Leggett is a steward among us. Jimmy is a a parishioner at Saint Patrick Catholic Church and an alumni of Saint Patrick Catholic School class of 2015. For his Eagle Scout Project, he wanted to give back something tangible and spiritual to Troop 299’s sponsor, Saint Patrick Catholic Church & School.
The reason why I chose to give the church a gift was because the church has given a lot the the Boy Scouts in this area. The church gives us a place to perform our meetings and a place to store our camping gear. It feels right to make my Eagle Scout project give back to the community that has help our troop so much.— Jimmy Leggett
The Eagle Scout Service Project, or more simply the Eagle Scout Project, is the opportunity for a Scout to demonstrate leadership of others while performing a project for the benefit of his community. This is the culmination of the Eagle Scout candidate’s leadership training, and it requires a significant effort on his part. The project must benefit an organization other than the Scouts, however it cannot be performed for an individual or a business or be commercial in nature.
On November 24, 2018, with the support of his family, Troop 299 and the faith community, Jimmy installed Stations of the Cross in the courtyard at Saint Patrick Catholic Church adding an outdoor spiritual area adding to the beauty of the parish. Jimmy will be formally presented with the Eagle Scout award at a Court of Honor ceremony at Saint Patrick Catholic Church later this year.
