Nathan Jenkins, age 17, son of Rob and Bonnie Jenkins of Lawrenceville has earned the rank of Eagle Scout. He was awarded the Eagle Scout Rank on October 24, 2015. He is a member of Troop 563. Nathan choose to do his Eagle Scout project at Mountain View High School. Nathan's project consists of an approximately 80 foot long continuous span of raised boardwalk spanning over a flooded section of the Karl Lee Community Trail, which runs adjacent to Mountain View High School and connects the school to a nearby neighborhood. Many community members, as well as the school's students, faculty, and sports teams use the trail to walk and run on. In the past, flooding has often completely covered the pathway, but now all community members will be able to use the trail while remaining dry. The main inspiration for this project was Nathan's experience running on the trail with his cross country team. As a team, they routinely clean and improve the trails that they call home. Nathan expressed the sentiment that, "I wanted to go above and beyond to leave a legacy to the younger runners on my team. I look forward to returning to Mountain View one day to see that my project is still helping people.". Nathan is a senior at Mountain View High School and has earned 22 Merit Badges.
