Congratulations to freshman Erik Backstrom for recently earning the Rank of Eagle Scout. Erik’s Eagle Scout project was based along a section of the Richland Creek Greenway where he removed invasive species and planted native trees. The undertaking required him to work closely with Richland Creek Watershed Alliance (RCWA), as he planned and executed the project. The venture wrapped up in March 2017. Erik successfully completed an Eagle Scout board of review and was awarded the Eagle Scout Rank during an induction ceremony on October 2, 2017. Erik is a member of Troop 1914 based at the Cathedral of the Incarnation.
