When Nicholas Welter (11) set his sights on becoming an Eagle Scout, he needed to find a project that helped the community. One of his ideas was to come up with a plan to give San Juan Hills something it’s been lacking since it’s opening, having our school logo on the side of the hill facing our school, and in doing so secured his name in SJHHS history.

“I’m a Boy Scout in Troop 113 and I needed my Eagle project requirement and decided that our school needed it’s letters on the hill because every school in this district has one except us,” Welter said.

He is no stranger to community projects. He has helped to gather old baseball equipment for a Nicaraguan baseball school, which he said was “…rad [being able to] help those kids have stuff to use” said Welter.

When he pitched the idea to put the SJHHS letters on the hill facing the school, officials at the school were happy to get the letters, and they greenlighted the plan. It took him and members of his troop and friends from school 55 hours to complete what he likes to call “The Brand”.

Welter said that what he learned in Boy Scouts helped him with his project. “Mostly through a leadership standpoint.

The big part of this project was organizing the help I needed… members of my troop mostly, and members of the school too.”

— Nick Welter

” Welter gives a shout out to Noah Delorean, Kaden Gorlock, and Thomas Pike, who were “were major contributors to this project.”

Welter was promoted to Eagle Scout for his project . He plans to to continue with the Boy Scouts and said, “I bet I will [continue to] participate in projects because I like that kind of stuff, but mostly in Boy Scouts I’ll continue to mentor younger boys to get up to this level and become Eagle Scouts.”

But being an Eagle Scout is not only about completing a project. Each scout must advance through many different ranks, provide leadership in the troop as well as earning 21 merit badges.
Scouts must also complete their eagle projects before they turn 18, or sooner if they want to use it on their college applications.
