Touchstone Student Achieves Eagle Scout Rank

Cooper Schumway, a member of Touchstone’s Older Student Program, is one of the youngest Scouts to achieve the status of Eagle Scout in his troop’s 100 year history. This is scouting’s highest rank and requires the scout to hold positions of leadership, earn a minimum of 21 merit badges, demonstrate scout spirit, and complete an Eagle project in which he provides leadership in service to another organization.

For his Eagle project, Cooper, who will be graduating from Touchstone this June, organized a group of volunteers to remove invasive plant species from the nature trail and grounds of Touchstone Community School. Cooper and his volunteers put 190 hours into planning and executing the project, which involved pulling up invasive plants and hauling them to the Grafton brush dump.
