RCE's New Buddy Bench

Alex Boltralik, former Rock Creek Elementary student, chose our school to be the recipient of his Eagle Scout Project. Alex belongs to Troop #997 and is currently a senior at Fort Zumwalt West High School. For the Eagle Scout project, Alex was required to plan, develop and give leadership to others in a service project that benefits the community. Alex decided to build and install a Buddy Bench on our playground in the hopes that it will help students make more friends and to always have someone to play with at recess. His project was completed this summer. Alex states that "being a Scout has had a huge impact on my life. A huge amount of my friends are people I met through Boy Scouts, and we all had fun together from Middle School all the way to High School. I have also learned so many useful skills ranging from sailing to public speaking and leadership." Alex hopes to study chemistry following graduation.

We thank Alex for his contribution to our school!
