KENDALL – Two brothers from Kendall – Matthew and Nicholas Schuth – were recognized as Eagle Scouts during a Court of Honor ceremony on Aug. 10. Matthew and Nicholas join older brother Michael as Eagle Scouts, the highest honor for a Boy Scout.

David and Cathy Schuth are parents of the three Scouts who are members of Troop 94.

State Assemblyman Steve Hawley attended the ceremony and presented the new Eagle Scouts with certificates for their achievement.

For his Eagle project, Matthew built a picture place at the Kendall Community Park. Beginning by clearing trees and brush, the site was then backfilled for planting arborvitaes. A foundation and concrete pad from a former building are the base for a vinyl arbor and are accessible by the stone walkway. This low maintenance backdrop has already been used for many formal photographs.

For his Eagle project, Nicholas improved the Kendall Food Cupboard. Housed in the Kendall United Methodist Church, this vital community service needed additional storage space. Wood shelving was installed to allow overhead storage for lightweight items and a full wall of shelves that more than doubled the shelving used for food. All food was removed from the shelving, inspected and placed on the new shelving per direction from Marty and Zina Goodenbery.
