Shawnee Eagle Scout Gives Back to Elementary School

October 21, 2015

Shawnee District’s Hayden Smee, of Troop 4002 chartered to Grace United Methodist Church of Cape Girardeau, credits his elementary school for giving him a great head start in life. So when it came to performing his Eagle Scout service project, Hayden decided to do something for Schrader Elementary School.

Over the course of 13 months, Hayden planned and installed new posts at the entrance of the school.

Hayden received the prestigious Eagle Scout Award in September.
