Sophomore Liam Tena has been in Troop 228 since 2008 when he began as a Cub Scout and has now worked his way up to Eagle Scout.

He earned his new ranking at the BSA Troop 228’s Winter Court of Honor held Jan. 20 at the Bethel Park Community Center. Special guest Natalie Mihalek, a State Representative, awarded Tena with a Congressional Citation.

He completed his Eagle Project in April 2018, and he successfully passed his formal Board of Review on Sept 26. For Tena’s Eagle Project, he regulated the construction of a three-bin composting system to contribute to the gardening area and seventh and eighth-grade science programs at IMS.

Tena’s Eagle Project will give the school a way to recycle plant-based waste such as grass clippings and particular food scraps. It will provide compost to be used in both the school’s green area and in educational projects by students of the school when getting taught about decomposition and environmental science. His bin is 12 feet by 4 feet and consists of three sections. Each is divided by chicken wire with movable front slats as well as educational laser-engraved signs.
