ROCKY RIVER—State Representatives Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) and Dave Greenspan (R-Westlake) recently congratulated Alex Lenhart of Rocky River for attaining the rank of Eagle Scout with a bronze palm. Lenhart, a member of Troop 194, designed and executed an Eagle Project focused on renovating the flag pole at the Rocky River City Schools Board of Education building. His project included creating a new bed with perennials and other visual improvements as well as a new set of American and Ohio flags.

“Alex’s commitment to the community is best demonstrated through his actions,” said Rep. Anielski. “Alex’s hard work and dedication in renewing the space dedicated to our state and national flags allow those who pass by to give the flags the reverence they are due in a beautiful space. I am happy to congratulate him on achieving this lofty award as well as earning two associates degrees over the course of his high school career.”

Lenhart’s additional award, a bronze palm, indicates that he has at least 26 merit badges. The rank of Eagle Scout is the highest offered by the Boy Scouts of America. Requirements for the award include winning at least twenty-one merit badges and demonstration of the Scout Spirit, as well as a project oriented towards community service. Alex Lenhart is currently a senior at Rocky River High School and will be attending Case Western Reserve University on a full ride scholarship.
