TCS Alumni Earns Eagle Scout Ranking
The Christ School congratulates Nelson Garris, TCS 8th grade student, who earned the rank of Eagle Scout on January 30. Eagle Scout is the highest rank attainable in the Boy Scouting program of the Boy Scouts of America. His scouting project was to build a 180-ft. walkway at Canine Companions for Independence (CCI) that connects the dormitory to the training pen. Quarterly, CCI brings in the recipients of the dogs to their campus for a two-week training as they are paired up with their animal. Prior to the walkway, the recipients who used wheelchairs had to go a long way around the building and through a parking lot to reach the training pen. Now they have a straight path, thanks to this new walkway. Nelson raised just under $2,000 for the materials, organized the building of walkway and coordinated the pouring of the concrete.
