A Boy Scout from Troop 600, Tucker Bordeaux, made benches as a Scout Eagle Candidate project for a local school and hospital. The recipients were very appreciative of the gifts.

In recognition of Nurses Week and in memory of two late nurses, Bordeaux presented a bench to Cape Fear Valley-Bladen Hospital on May 9th. As a memorial, the two treasured nurses’ names were engraved on a plaque on the handmade bench given to the hospital by Bordeaux.

The memorialized Bladen County nurses, Ms. Penny Utterback and Ms. Ann Smith, passed away this year and both ladies were beloved by fellow staff members and their patients.

Dr. Teresa (Terri) Duncan, Director of Bladen County Health and Human Services, acknowledged Bordeaux’s thoughtful project, “Thank you to Eagle Scout candidate Tucker Bordeaux with Troop 600 for building the bench as part of your Eagle Scout project.”

Principal of Dublin Primary School (DPS), Marc Edge, also commended Bordeaux on his Eagle Project. Edge announced DPS received multiple benches from Bordeaux this past April. Edge was very impressed with Bordeax’s willingness to help his hometown school.

According to Boy Scouts of America, Boy Scouts who earn the rank of Life Scout may plan an Eagle Scout Project to earn the coveted rank of Eagle Scout. Bordeaux had to plan the project, obtain funding, and put in a certain amount of hours in order to submit his Eagle Scout Candidate Project for approval.

Once approved, Bordeaux may qualify for the Eagle Scout rank. Scout Masters with Troop 600 will confirm Bordeaux’s new rank once approved.
