Eagle Scout Rebuilds Fence for Our Lady of Lourdes School

[slideshow_deploy id=’78888′]

As a Tiger Scout, a young Erik Wrysinski, of Colusa, attended his cousin’s Eagle Court of Honor and aspired to one day earn an honor of his own.

Now 17, Wrysinski received the highest achievement or rank attainable in the Boy Scouting program of the Boy Scouts of America, during Eagle Court of Honor was held on Saturday, August 20.

Receiving his Eagle Scout Honor, Wrysinski commented that he had learned a lot of skills throughout his Scouting.

“I Started in the first grade as a Tiger Scout and continued,” said Wrysinski. “I have learned many outdoor skills and fist aid.”

Wrysinski added that he enjoyed learning about sail boating. “It’s a fun skill to have,” he said.

While the requirements for an Eagle Scout included earning at least 21 merit badges and demonstrated the Scout Spirit, Wrysinski had to complete an extensive service project.

“I rebuilt the fence at Our Lady of Lourdes School at the Garden and Rectory,” said Wrysinski.

“I went to school at OLL and walked by the fence every day – the fence looked cool, but it wasn’t stable and was a hazard,” he said.

As part of his Eagle Scout project he went to community leaders and raised the funds necessary to complete the project. He also managed the project with the help of mentors.

Wrysinski was surrounded by friends, family, and community members as the Colusa Boy Scout Troop 5 initiated the ceremony.

“It was a long process to get my Eagle Honor,” said Wrysinski, “It took a year and a half – I couldn’t have done it without the support of my parents and Amy Gerrard.”

Wrysinski provided his parents each with a special honor lapel pin and Scoutmaster Amy Gerrard.

“Amy was always pushing me, and helped guide me along the way,” he said. “Her dedication makes us work harder.”

To his fellow scouts who are aspiring to obtain their Eagle Honor, Wrysinski commented that they should remember to stay focused.

When he isn’t tending to his scout duties he enjoys cross country running, video games, and stays busy.

“I enjoy technology and working with it,” said Wrysinski. “I hope to work in that field someday.”

During the ceremony, Wrysinski was also presented with a certificate from Nancy Wayman on behalf of the Colusa County Office of Education Board of Trustees and the Colusa County Superintendent of Schools for his achievement and excellence. <
