Granite Bay residents Kevin Carlson and JC Davis recently achieved Boy Scouting’s highest rank of Eagle Scout. Carlson, a junior at Granite Bay High School completed his Eagle project that involved building a wooden fence for Peace for Families organization in Roseville and included more than 204 hours of service. For the project Carlson had to plan the fence layout, calculate the supplies needed, negotiate prices from lumber stores and solicit donations to pay for the materials. The project was completed in July 2008, with the help of 27 Scouts and volunteers. Davis, who attends Capital Christian High School, finished his Eagle Project with the painting of the facilities at Valley Springs Presbyterian Church in Roseville and included more than 158 hours of service. Davis was involved with the repainting of three walls and a multi-sectional stage at the church. With the help of many other scouts and adults, the surfaces were prepped and two coats of paint were applied. In addition, many other maintenance projects around the church were completed. The project was finished in May 2008. The ceremony included special presentations by Placer County Sheriff Ed Bonner, State Assembly District Director Adam Willoughby and National Jamboree Scoutmaster Dr. John Hogg. Granite Bay resident and Scoutmaster John Hooten was also in attendance and has personally mentored 133 of the 175 Eagle Scouts from Troop 121.
