The last and most difficult challenge for a scout on the "Eagle Trail" is his Eagle Project. This is a community-based improvement proposal on which the scout is responsible for all aspects of the project, to include planning, fund-raising, volunteer-raising, implementation and final presentation and approval by a board of review.
Charles' project benefited the St. Louise football organization. He refurbished a mobile two-tier metal announcer's stand used during the school's football games. He developed and implemented a plan to remove years of accumulated rust, repainted the structure, put skid resistant on the steps, and cleaned the interior of the announcer's area.
Charles received many letters of recognition and congratulations from national, state, and local dignitaries. Attending and presenting Award Certificates were the following individuals:
- Alex Parrish - representing the Mt. Lebanon/Dormont Lions club
- Noah Pillon - Gardner (Eagle Scout); representing Pa. State Representative Dan Miller
- Eugene Eckman - representing the B.P.O.E. Lodge 2213 in Bethel Park.
Mr. Eckman gave a short motivational speech and presented the new Eagle Scout with two framed Awards. One from the local Bethel Park Lodge and one from the B.P.O.E. Grand Lodge in Chicago. He also presented Charles with a personal size U.S. Flag, and a gold lapel pin which represents the long relationship between the two organizations.
