Neil’s Project was a multi-part trail building and renovation effort at Upton Hill Regional Park in Arlington, tying together several previous efforts by Troop 111 Eagle Scouts. A heck of an effort, about 295 man-hours in all.

Neil is planning to finish the IB Program at Washington-Lee, but has not yet decided on a college or major.

Thanks to the Board of Review members Brigadier General Ted Bowlds (USAF), Dr. Michael Cassidy, Ruth Netting (District Advancement Chairman), Max Padon (District Eagle Board), and Rita Rooney (Chairman).
