Senator Dinniman Recognizes Eagle Scouts

Tuesday, November 5, 2013

WEST CHESTER – State Senator Andy Dinniman recently recognized five members of the Boy Scouts of America’s Troop 158 of Kimberton on achieving the rank of Eagle Scout.
Dinniman congratulated the Scouts and thanked them for their service to the community during their recent visit to his West Chester district office. He also presented each of the Scouts with a special Senate citation in honor of their accomplishments.
“Becoming an Eagle Scout is a lot of work, but it is an achievement you will carry with you for the rest of your life,” Dinniman told the Scouts.
Those who achieved the rank of Eagle Scout and their respective projects are as follows:
Kevin Colbert of Phoenixville built a ¾-mile trail with historical signage along the French Creek.
Andrew Less of East Pikeland built a trail along Pigeon Creek in East Coventry Township.
Steven Ringenbach of East Pikeland built a stairway and bridge at the athletic fields at Charlestown Park.
Matthew Waldschmidt of Spring City built a storage shed at the Spring City Pool.
Justin Ackroyd built a stairway and 1.3-mile trail off Overcreek Drive in Kimberton.
“I always enjoy meeting with members of the Boy Scouts and hearing what they have to say about our local communities and schools,” Dinniman said. “These young people are the future of our Commonwealth. It is good to see that they are already committed to their communities and understand the importance of volunteerism and civic duty.”
