HERMON – What better way to earn your eagle scout rank than working hard in the rain with a few friends? That was the case for Kent Raymond, a young man with a passion to serve his community and to be a part of something big.
Raymond is looking to earn his rank by beautifying Hermon High School with a garden project. He says, it’s been in the works for years and finally he’s looking to execute this initiative.
“I’ve been working on this since first grade ever since I joined (the) scouts,” said Raymond, “I just think the Eagle Project is a great way to get involved in the community and it’s a great way to help a school.”
This is the first time the school is getting a garden since the school opened back in 1995.
