Glenshaw Boy Scouts earn their wings
Boy Scout Troop 560 of St. Bonaventure Church in Glenshaw honored Collin Heiry, Clinton Volle and Cameron Heiry in June at an Eagle Scout Court of Honor.
Collin and Cameron are the sons of Mike and Jane Heiry, and Clint is the son of Ken and Ruth Volle, all of Glenshaw.
Collin's project was to continue to build an Americans with Disabilities Act compliant, elevated boardwalk section of the Wahdogwas Trail in North Park, and to install 10 signs that tell visitors about plants and wildlife there.
Clint's project consisted of designing and building two raised garden beds for residents of Vincentian Personal Care Home. The wheelchair and walker accessible beds will give the residents a place to garden without bending over.
Cameron's project was to renovate the history room at the Glenshaw Public Library by painting walls, organizing books, framing 30 pictures and newspaper articles and installing a tile floor. He also obtained a conference table for the meeting room and built a bookshelf.
Collin, Clinton and Cameron joined Cub Scout Pack 560 at age 7 and later earned the highest award, the Arrow of Light.
Collin and Cameron will be seniors at Central Catholic High School in Oakland, and Clint will be a senior at Shaler Area High School.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
