Evan T. Myers

Residence: Penn Hills

Age: 18

School: Myers is a senior at Penn Hills High School.

Family: Parents, Richard and Denise Myers; a sister, Lauren Menzietti, 24

Noteworthy: Myers erected a flagpole at the Blackridge Civic Association in Churchill. The service project was a part of the work he did to earn the rank of Eagle Scout. Evan, with the help of fellow scouts and community members, did all the preparation work, poured concrete and sand, erected the pole and arranged for landscaping at the site. Myers said the cost of the project, about $400, was paid for by donations from the community. Myers will be recognized for attaining the rank of Eagle Scout during a Court of Honor at 6 p.m. Sunday at the Blackridge Civic Association, 1200 Beulah Road, Churchill.

Activities: Myers is a member of Boy Scout Troop 115, sponsored by St. Bartholomew Catholic Church in Penn Hills; the marching band at his school; and the Junior Navy Reserve Officers Training Corps.

Quote: "I felt relieved to complete the project. It felt good to raise the flag for the first time.

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.
