Board of Education Honors Eagle Scout Jones

Congratulations to Peter Jones, a 2015 graduate of Colonie Central High School, who achieved the rank of Eagle Scout on May 27, 2015 and was recognized at an Eagle Scout Court of Honor on July 12, 2016.

Peter, a member of the Boy Scout Troop 278, was honored by the South Colonie Board of Education this month with a President's Spotlight Award. To achieve the rank of Eagle Scout, Peter served his troop in a variety of roles, including Senior Patrol leader. Peter’s Eagle Scout project meant a great deal to him. He installed cabinets on pre-existing cubbyholes at the Pine Grove Methodist Church. Peter worked on three rooms with very different cabinet measurements and utilized the wood shop at the High School to complete the project. After much hard work the cabinets were installed and varnished. Peter has already used his scouting skills and hopes he will continue to use everything he has learned in years to come.
