Andrew appreciates the hard work and dedication of his Scoutmaster, Patrick Markel.
Andrew has been active in Scouting and has held leadership positions of Chaplain’s Aide, Patrol Leader and Assistant Senior Patrol Leader. Andrew loves the outdoor activities provided by scouting, especially learning about firearms and how to handle them safely and learning shooting skills. The valuable life skills learned in scouting has given him some of the best memories he has ever had. He’s had the opportunity to push himself and strive to become someone honorable.
For his Eagle project, Andrew held supply drives to collect supplies for two dog rescue organizations. Second Chances is a non-profit in San Ramon and Lucky Dog Rescue is based in Pleasanton. His team collected $7,000 in monetary donations and about 400 items, including dog beds, toys, treats, blankets, grooming supplies and crates. There were about 40 helpers on the project for a total of 222 hours worked.
Andrew is a senior at Berean Christian High School. His interests are varied and include firearms, video games, Star Wars and politics. He plans on attending college and earning teaching credentials in US History and Political Science.
