Pleasanton: Eagle Scout Anthony Mitine

Project is display table for Alviso Adobe visitor center

Anthony Mitine has been awarded the rank of Eagle Scout and was recognized April 27 during a Court of Honor ceremony conducted virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Anthony Mitine.

Mitine, who is going into his junior year at Foothill High School, is a member of Troop 908, sponsored by St. Clare Episcopal Church. He has earned 22 merit badges, served as a patrol leader, and for the fourth year continues to be a den chief, assisting Cub Scouts. He volunteered as a youth staff member at Tiger Cub Safari Overnight Camp and Shadow Cliffs Twin Valley Day Camp for more than 100 hours of community service.

For his Eagle Scout Project, Mitine led Cub Scouts, Scouts and adult volunteers to create a "Touch Table" for the visitor center at Alviso Adobe Community Park. The Touch Table is equipped with a plexiglass display for fragile items such as birds' nests and replicas of birds' eggs. The mid-shelf is an interactive four-part section, encouraging people to examine feathers, snake skins and animal pelts.

The bottom shelf, stenciled by the Webelos of Pack 943 with a woodland background, displays three handmade tactile boxes, depicting nature scenes that were painted by Foothill students. This project benefits the community as it offers an opportunity for visitors of all ages to learn about California flora and fauna.

Mitine continues to be an active member in his community, mentoring younger Scouts to earn Eagle rank. He is involved in VEX Robotics Club and Inventor's Club at school and also actively participates and is an organizer of Bay Area Hackathons. He enjoys science, engineering, math, history and music. He is a part-time tennis instructor at Lifetime Activities, leading summer camps and teaching classes, and he is a summer intern at the Go Green Initiative and a fellow at Autonomous Power Racing.
