Walker Everette Greene age 17 of Sugar Hill, Georgia and son of Rodney and Shelby Greene has earned the rank of Eagle Scout on December 17, 2016. Walker attends North Gwinnett High School and is a Junior. His experience volunteering at the Georgia Mountain Food Bank led Walker to become interested in doing his Eagle project there. He devised and implemented a plan to enlarge and improve the food bank's on-site community garden. With a group of about 20 volunteers, he was able to expand the garden by adding additional beds, deer fencing, and soil amendments. The garden, planted this year by the Gainesville Jaycees, provides fresh produce for agency distribution and it also serves as an educational tool to teach about food, nutrition and cultivation.
Seth is a member of Troop 513, chartered by Sugar Hill Church and has earned 29 merit badges. He has served his troop as patrol leader, quartermaster and troop librarian. Walker has earned the Triple Crown of National High Adventure award by participating in adventure programs at a Northern Tier High Adventure Base, Philmont Scout Ranch, and Florida National High Adventure Sea Base.

Seth Thomas Bielstein, age 17 of Lawrenceville, GA and son to Lisa Givens and William Bielstein has earned the rank of Eagle Scout on November 19, 2016. Seth is home schooled is a senior. The service project that Seth choose came about from doing volunteer work at The Hope Assisted Living Center in Dacula, Georgia. He had seen the need to enhance the lives of the residents by adding wheelchair accessible height planter boxes to the courtyards. The boxes are unique in that they were made from donated recycled wood pallets. It took all of the wood from one complete pallet to construct one complete planter box. The use of the recycled wood helped to preserve the environment and save money needed on the project also. There are four identical courtyards with a pergola located within each one, the planter boxes were placed at each of the four posts of those pergola's, 16 boxes, filled with colorful and vibrant plants. The residents enjoy their time outside tending to the plants in the boxes and hope to plant more flowers and vegetables as seasons change. Planting is great therapy for the elderly, it brings them hope, sense of accomplishment and enjoyment.
