Eagle Court for Foothill senior

Scout project replaced trees affected by drought

An Eagle Court of Honor will be held Sunday for Pleasanton teen Alexander Brandon Swenson-Lennox.

Swenson-Lennox is a member of Troop 998, sponsored by the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Post 6298, where he has served in leadership positions.

He is a senior at Foothill High School, where he plays hockey, and he is an AA hockey player for the Golden State Elite Eagles. He also plays the piano and guitar, and sings in the high school choir. He plans to study business and environmental science at college in the fall.

For his Eagle Scout community project, Swenson-Lennox worked with the Friends of the Arroyo, the Livermore Area Recreation and Park District and Rotary International to plant native species of trees in Sycamore Grove Park and new trees in Marlin Pound Neighborhood Park to replace those affected by the drought.

Swenson-Lennox received his Eagle Award with 37 merit badges, 16 more than the number required for the award, which qualifies him for three palms in addition to his Eagle award. His father is also an Eagle Scout and is the training chairman for the Twin Valley District of the Boys Scouts of America.

Swenson-Lennox, is the son of Michael Lennox and Andrea Swenson of Pleasanton.

Anyone interested in joining any level of Scouting can contact Twin Valley District executive Matt Lindberg at
