Three Scouts earn Eagle rank
Holly Springs High School students and Troop 431 members Ryan Wing, Justin Woffinden and Porter Savoldi recently received their Eagle Scout rank, the highest achievement in Boy Scouting. Tar Heal Detachment 733 of the Marine Corps League gave each of the Scouts a Good Citizen Award during their Eagle Scout ceremony.
For his Eagle project, Wing built a pantry at the Womens Center of Wake County and held a food drive to fill the pantry shelves.
Woffindens project also benefited the Womens Center; he built benches for the centers clients to safely wait for transportation.
Savoldi made a video for the Holly Springs Food Cupboard that explained the organizations goal and encouraged others to help. To see his video, go to www.hsfoodcupboard.org.
