For his project, Spierdowis, who is a member of Scout Troop 164, repaired and rehabbed a classroom at Holy Family Catholic Church’s Lyceum. This included repairing cement walls, sanding, repainting and cleaning the room. “Cole is the epitome of hard work, dedication and loyalty,” said Albion varsity wrestling Coach Pat Uveino. “He is not only an honor student and varsity wrestler but now also an Eagle Scout. The amount of effort and dedication he has is tremendous. What an incredible accomplishment.”
