Four State College Boy Scouts Earn Eagle Rank
Four young men from our area have attained the top rank in the Boy Scouts.
Jacob Clark, Alexander Herr, Sachin Prasad and Peter Tittmann, members of Boy Scout Troop 83, have achieved the rank of Eagle Scout.
They were honored Aug. 11, during a ceremony at the Knights of Columbus Hall in State College.
As part of their work to become Eagle Scouts, each of the teens was required to complete a community service project.
Jacob Clark is the son of Rob and Becki Clark. For his community service project, Jacob restored the Monet Garden behind Our Lady of Victory School to create a peaceful place for people to pray. Clark also served his troop as a Patrol Leader, Den Chief, Librarian and Troop Guide.
Alexander Herr is the son of Stephen and Kathleen Herr. He built special dividers for the dog kennels at Centre County PAWS. The partitions reduce noise and help keep the dogs calm. Herr served his troop as a Troop Guide, Assistant and Senior Patrol Leader and Junior Assistant Scoutmaster.
Sachin Prasad is the son of Sangeeta Prasad. He painted classrooms, shampooed carpets, and rearranged furniture for the Mid-State Literacy Council, improving the learning environment for the students. Prasad served his troop as a Scribe, Librarian, Assisstant Patrol Leader, Patrol Leader and Troop Guide.
Peter Tittmann is son of Heidi Tittmann and Steve Kretschmer. For his project, Tittmann designed and built a set of nine removable steps for the altar of Our Lady of Victory Church. That allows priests to say Latin Mass on the side of the altar. Tittmann served his troop as Patrol Leader and Assistant Senior Patrol Leader.
Clark, Herr and Prasad all graduated from State College Area High School.
Tittmann is a student of Mother of Divine Grace Home School.
During the award ceremony special presentations were made by Becky Evans of the State College Elks, Congressman Glenn Thompson, Rep. Scott Conklin, Tom Fonda of the Juniata Valley Council, Dallas Lykens of the Nittany Leathernecks, and Ed Hughes of the Knights of Columbus.
