Michelle and Alisdair MacLean are proud parents of Nicholas MacLean, a senior at Ridge Point High School. Nicholas earned his Eagle Scout Rank on June 4. He started Cub Scouts with Pack 1401 at Sienna Crossing Elementary and crossed over into Boy Scouts when he joined Troop 140 in Sienna Plantation.
Hehas earned 54 merit badges, served in many leadership positions, his most recent being Jr. Assistant Scoutmaster, and participated in numerous volunteer hours. He has also attended many events and outings over the years including monthly campouts, summer camps, and high adventure treks as Philmont and Sea Base .
For his Eagle project, Nicholas built baseball organizers for the Sienna Baseball Association. The project provided 4 dugout organizers, each consisting of 16 cubicles, giving each ball player a cubical for his hat, glove, and helmet plus a place to hang his bat. This involved researching, organizing, working within a budget, plus acquiring and supervising volunteers in the construction and installation needed to complete this project. This project involved 258.3 hours and 21 people.
Nicholas’ goal now is to earn three Palms before he turns 18. His Eagle Court of Honor is to be held on September 2, at the Harvest United Methodist Church in Sienna.
