Aspiring Eagle Scout Gives Back to Levittown Community

October 18, 2017

Aspiring Eagle Scout Gives Back to Levittown Community 001MacArthur High School junior Jordan Waitkus recently planted six trees and bushes over the course of a two-day period along the walkway of the Levittown Memorial Education Center as part of his Eagle Scout service project. Through his project, Waitkus honored Eagle Scouts that graduated from Division Avenue, Levittown Memorial and MacArthur high schools by adding two pedestals displaying the names and troop numbers of the scouts.

Waitkus has been a member of the Boy Scouts of America since the age of six and is currently part of Troop 330. He has moved through the ranks over the years from Cub Scout to Boy Scout, volunteering throughout his membership and earning various badges.

Boy Scouts of America recognizes young people as Eagle Scouts once they fulfill the proper requirements. This includes working in the areas of leadership, service and outdoor skills. An Eagle Scout is the highest ranking in the Boy Scouts of America and only about five percent of all Boy Scouts receive the honor.

Waitkus wanted to do something special for the Levittown community and brainstormed with Superintendent of Schools Dr. Tonie McDonald on a service project. Together, they came up with the idea of beautifying the walkway of the Levittown Memorial Education Center and celebrating the Eagle Scouts from Levittown.

"It was a lot of work but as soon as it started coming together, it came out really well," said Waitkus. "I'm proud of myself."

Waitkus is committed to making sure that the list is updated with any Eagle Scout that is not currently represented. If anyone qualifies and would like to be added, Waitkus will accept names and troop numbers at jtwaitkus@gmail.com.
