Jason Hunter Reeves, a member of Canton’s Boy Scout Troop 125, completed his Eagle Scout service project at Reinhardt University’s Funk Heritage Center this fall.
Members of his Troop helped him construct a 12-foot-by-12-foot pole shed in the Appalachian Settlement located behind the Funk Heritage Center. In addition to designing the shed, Hunter determined the building materials, tools and equipment necessary for the project and obtained everything required to complete it
“I know it took a great deal of time to plan, design and gather the materials for Hunter’s project,” Dr. Joe Kitchens, executive director for the Heritage Center said. “This is a very significant accomplishment and a gift to the Center’s Appalachian Settlement that he can proudly say was done in the spirit of Scouting. This pole shed provides a covered place that will be used by craftsmen demonstrating their work for many years.”
“Members of Troup 125 have assisted the Funk Heritage Center with many great projects over the years. We appreciate the boys and their Scout Master, Mr. Charles Burgess, as well as all of the adults who assist their Scouts with these community service projects,” said Martha Hout, program coordinator for the Heritage Center.
