MILTON, Ga. – In October, Milton welcomed five new Eagle Scouts, who passed their Board of Reviews on Oct. 24. These boys were Jonathon Rhodes, Andrew Lockwood, Colby Dimock and Grant Lancaster, who each led community projects to earn their badges.

Andrew Lockwood helped construct a memorial atrium at Taylor Road Middle School. The memorial was dedicated to Ms. Sgro-Ellis, a deceased teacher. Back at his old middle school, Lockwood and his team brought in a picnic table, six benches and several large pots for plants to form the memorial. As a member of Troop 2000, Lockwood found a sponsor in Johns Creek Presbyterian Church.

The other new Eagle Scouts were members of Troop 317, and all were sponsored by Perimeter Church. However, each boy led a different project.

Jonathon Rhodes constructed a play set and a border around it for the church itself. He also found himself at Homestretch Properties, an organization dedicated to providing for homeless families, where he built a border around the back fence and porch and planted a large maple tree.

Colby Dimock’s project was the construction of an arbor for “A Beacon of Hope” ministry of Mount Pisgah United Methodist Church.

Grant Lancaster helped out at Perimeter Church’s Camp All-American, where he constructed “Helmet Only Zones” around the three high ropes courses.

All of these boys belonged to the Milton Boy Scout District, which encompasses the cities of Roswell, Alpharetta, Johns Creek and Milton.
