BL Junior Earns Eagle Scout Honor

Bishop Lynch Junior Joshua A. Curtis achieved the rank of Eagle Scout at his Eagle Board of Review in November. Joshua is a member of Boy Scout Troop 412 at St. Monica Catholic Church and School. To achieve the rank of Eagle, a Scout must earn at least 21 merit badges (so far, Joshua has earned 43) and demonstrate leadership and commitment to community service by organizing and carrying out an Eagle Project. Joshua’s Eagle Project was to design and create a Marion Courtyard on the lawn of St. Monica Catholic Church.
For many years, the existing Mary statue stood alone on grass next to the church. With the help of fellow scouts and the generous donation of Roc Construction and Complete Landsculpture, they were able to construct a beautiful courtyard around Mary where people could walk on a stone-paved cross to sit on two granite benches and pray or spend time with the Holy Mother. Congratulations Joshua!

Faithful to Catholic Tradition and to our Dominican heritage of scholarship and service, Bishop Lynch High School promotes the development of the total person by bringing together a diverse community in a rigorous, college preparatory environment where students are taught to strive for excellence, seek truth, and work for justice in the world. - Founded in 1963
