Two Scotts Valley Boy Scouts were honored during the summer as they achieved the rank of Eagle Scout.
Zach Gorski and Tyler Edwards, of Scotts Valley’s Troop 614, were recognized in June at the Redwood Glen Amphitheater at the Salvation Army camp on Bean Creek Road.
During the ceremony, Gorski and Edwards each received letters of recognition from Mayor Donna Lind, Rep. Anna Eshoo, Sens. Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein and President Barack Obama.
Edwards is in his sophomore year at University of Washington, where he is pursuing a degree in bioengineering, and Gorski recently began his freshman year at University of Hawaii in Hilo, to study for a degree in marine biology.
The ceremony recognized Gorski and Edwards’ combined 19 years of Scouting, and attendees included their parents, Ray and Cindy Gorski and Roxanne and Tim Edwards, 14 other Eagle Scouts, and a half-dozen troop leaders
For their Eagle projects, they led teams of Scouts to improve a camp for underprivileged children, the Salvation Army’s Camp Redwood Glen.
Gorski was responsible for moving and rebuilding a kiosk information center, and Edwards took charge of designing and constructing a building to store firewood.
