Orinda's Boy Scout Troop 57 announced that three Miramonte High School seniors - Dennis Finger, Cole Sitar and Ryan Sitar - and USC School of Cinematic Arts freshman Christopher Tennant achieved Scouting's highest rank of Eagle Scout, which was celebrated at an Eagle Court of Honor Sept. 7 at Holy Shepherd Lutheran Church in Orinda.
To become an Eagle, the candidate must earn a minimum of 21 merit badges, including 13 Eagle-required badges, demonstrate leadership and scout spirit, and successfully complete an Eagle service project that benefits the community: Dennis Finger refurbished a section of trail in the Wagner Ranch Nature Area. He supervised a group of more than 25 scouts, adult leaders and family in clearing the trail, transporting gravel and materials, and finally placing a layer of gravel on the trail. Cole Sitar rebuilt a dilapidated bocce ball court at Orinda Oaks Park. Thanks to the hard work of many scouts and scout leaders, the court took shape over three weekends last September, and is now fully functional for bocce tournaments by the residents of Orinda. Ryan Sitar designed and constructed a propagation greenhouse in the Del Rey Elementary School garden and repaired a garden shed. With help from Scouts, friends, and family over the course of four weeks, the greenhouse was built and the shed was refinished. And Christopher Tennant built a display system for students' plaques in the Miramonte Public Speaking classroom. He led a loyal team of Scouts and helpers over four days to paint a wall and trophy case, and install aluminum channels that now display 158 plaques the Public Speaking program has collected over the past 30 years.
