Pine teen earns Eagle Scout status
Philip Canzian of Pine has achieved Eagle Scout rank, the highest rank awarded by the Boy Scouts of America.
Philip has been an active participant in scouts since 2006 when he joined St. Alexis' Cub Scouts Pack 956 as a first grade Tiger Scout. He bridged over to Boy Scouts in 2011 as one of the founding members of Aquinas Academy's Boy Scout Troop 596. The school was the benefactor of Philip's Eagle Scout project, which was completed in July and entailed installing a 100-foot gravel access path and drainage system to Aquinas's outdoor classroom (another Eagle Scout's project). The project spanned a six day period with the help of friends, family and fellow troop members all contributing over 240 work hours. The funding of the project came from direct donations from family, friends and local businesses.
Philip is now a senior at Vincentian Academy and plans to continue his involvement with scouts.
