Four new Eagle ScoutsAn Eagle Court of Honor was held in early January to bestow the rank of Eagle Scout upon Tarun Amuthan, Connor McCutcheon, Christopher Rowe and Greg Soyka, members of Troop 948, at the Centerpointe Presbyterian Church in Pleasanton. Their projects were as follows:
* Tarun Amuthan designed and built a radio-controlled car track at the BMX Park near Shadow Cliffs, creating a project plan and a team of volunteers to build the track. His main hope for this project was to attract more attention to Pleasanton and to give enthusiasts a legal way to pursue the hobby they love.
* Connor McCutcheon worked with the Harvest Park Middle School principal to clear out and organize a storage room at the school to serve as a storage area for staff and PTA. He removed unused items and installed 45 feet of shelving.
* Christopher Rowe built two wooden speaking podiums, one for Amador Valley High School and the other for Harvest Park Middle School so they would no longer have to borrow podiums for their graduation and other gatherings and award ceremonies.
* Greg Soyka worked with the city to construct bleachers at Alviso Adobe Comminity Park. The 14-foot-long bleachers are two-tiered and have the capability of being separated in the middle into two smaller bleachers.
Troop 948, under the leadership of Scoutmaster Sean McCutcheon, assistant scoutmasters and a supporting Troop Committee, has had 45 Eagle Scouts since 1989.
