The Bridge Academy Celebrates Two Eagle Scouts

Recent Bridge Academy alumnus Julian Reeves ’20 and Bridge student Jared Rodriguez have both been involved in scouting since grade school. This year they achieved something only four-percent of all Boy Scouts accomplish – they became Eagle Scouts. An Eagle Scout is the highest achievement or rank attainable in the Boy Scouting program of the Boy Scouts of America.

Julian, a member of Troop 82 in Jackson, earned his honor in March 2020 – just as the world was shutting down due to Coronavirus. Beginning in September 2019 he created a plan and rebuilt the posts and railings at the Forestry Center in Jackson, NJ. He also filled the steps with dirt and cleaned up the area. He graduated from The Bridge Academy in June and is now a student at Fairleigh Dickinson University.

Jared, a current student at Bridge, was inducted virtually into the Eagle Scout ranks on September 22, 2020. The distribution date for his project was January 25, 2019. Jared is a Life Scout and Troop Instructor in Troop 33 of West Trenton. “Scouts has taught me many basic skills I use daily including: teamwork, knots and first aid.” He chose to make hygiene bags to distribute to Loaves and Fishes of the Diocese of Trenton as his Eagle Scout project. He asked parishioners, local businesses, classmates, friends, and family to donate items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, soap, combs, washcloths, and more during the month of November 2019. He distributed the hygiene bags in January 2020. Jared continues to be involved with scouting.

We are proud of all of our scouts as they pursue their individual journeys.

Becoming an Eagle Scout takes perseverance and hard work – something Bridge students deal with every day in overcoming their educational obstacles.
