EAGLE SCOUT PROJECTS AT MONTROSE CEMETERY

Local Boy Scouts Jacob Rommerskirchen and Austin Ulmer are working to attain Eagle Scout status, the highest rank attainable with the Boy Scouts of America.  Only 2% of all Boy Scouts reach the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout and to do so, one of the required criteria is completion of an extensive service project. Both Scouts have chosen the beautification of Montrose Cemetery in Greenville as their service project.  WGEL spoke with Boy Scout Troop 50’s Sandy Kleinik about the boys’ selection of projects. Kleinik said Austin chose landscaping the Abbey because he wants to go into the military and memorializing veterans was something very near and dear to his heart.  Jacob accidentally discovered his project when the two went to the cemetery to scope out Austin’s project.  Jacob likes cemeteries, Kleinik said, along with other old, historical things and he noticed the cemetery gate needed repairing and decided to have his project also support Montrose Cemetery. Kleinik says the boys don’t really want a lot of recognition and local reaction has been a bit overwhelming for them. The areas will be the focus for the Memorial Day ceremony scheduled for Monday, May 30 at 10:00 a.m.
