Troop 60 Eagle Scout Helps Heroes

Reprinted from "The Mundelein Mustang", March 22, 2017.  Alex Heraty, Staff Reporter

Achieving the rank of Eagle Scout is an accomplishment that promotes “good conduct, respect for others, and honesty,” according to the official website of Boy Scouts of America, and one MHS Eagle Scout has gone above and beyond in his good deeds toward his school, community and country.

Matthew P., freshman, achieved Boy Scouts’ highest rank Eagle Scout in October 2016 and proved he is capable of being a leader through the completion of his service project, the final requirement needed to achieve such status.

“I joined scouting to meet new people that are going to have a positive impact on my life,” said Matthew.

As a Boy Scout, Matthew served as Assistant Patrol Leader and has earned 73 merit badges; only 21 are required for the rank of Eagle Scout. Merit badges signal a scout’s completion of learning such skills as first aid, personal finance and community service.

“I love Boy Scouts because you get to learn skills that you would never learn anywhere else,” said Matthew.

Matthew showed determination with his Eagle Scout service project that involved sending military care packages to Okinawa, Japan, where they were then distributed to U.S. troops in the Middle East.

“I wanted to do something that would impact a major group of people that was in need.  They desperately needed [supplies] because they were out fighting for us”.

Community members aided Matthew by donating items for the care packages or by purchasing a package to be sent overseas.  With the help of Helping Heroes of America, an organization that aids U.S. troops and veterans, he was able to ship the care packages for free.

“Matthew has benefited by gaining wisdom by doing,” said Village Trustee Holly Kim. “Risks, no matter how they end up, come with experience and learning.”

Kim assisted Matthew at the “civic tables” section for community organizations at Mundelein Days in July 2016 and helped him partner with Quick Pick, a local business that helped facilitate the project.

“I believe in working smarter, not harder, and partnering with a business means they help with positive advertising in the local community to bring in customers. It’s a win-win,” said Kim.

Matthew sent a total of 6,600 items overseas.  These items included food, hygiene and gaming products.

Helping Heroes of America inspired Pawlowski to begin the process of starting a new student organization at MHS. The club would be modeled off of Stevenson High School’s Students Helping Soldiers, which provides care packages and letters to troops overseas and hosts school and community events to raise awareness.

Patriotic Spirit Day - Lake Forest - Navy Seal Obstacle Course - Sept 10 (11am)

Posted on Aug 23 2016 - 8:44am

Your Scouts can join in the fun at a wonderful event coming up on Saturday, Sept. 10 downtown Lake Bluff – we’re calling it “Patriotic Spirit Day” and it will be a wonderful celebration of patriotism, community, food and activities for all ages!

The centerpiece of the event is a terrific troop or pack activity – it’s the opportunity for youth from ages 7 through high school to experience a Navy SEAL obstacle course with one-on-one attention by a former Navy SEAL through the course. Why not get your group together and go through in the same time slot? Simply contact Stefanie at the Chamber office and arrange for the group to go through together – she can be reached at 847-234-4282 or stefanie@LFLBchamber.com.

Obstacle course & event info: Here is an event overview with links to O-Course participation waivers – http://www.lflbchamber.com/pages/patrioticspiritday

Specific information and the appropriate waivers can be found on the website link provided above and here are two terrific videos – the first is the obstacle course at an event that took place at Soldier Field last year run by Thrive Project for America & its partner group, PST, and the second video is of a recent Thrive clinic with the Lake Forest Harrier Rugby and Illinois All Star teams.
