Mansfield, Oh - Part of becoming an Eagle Scout is completing an Eagle Scout Project, and Scout Christopher Kukowski’s project was a labor of love for Richland County Children Services.

For his Eagle Scout Project, Christopher (of Mansfield Troop 113) set up a wooden transformer bench and swing set at the agency, where employees, children and families can sit and relax.

The bench and swing set were dedicated on Wednesday, July 31, 2019. Mansfield Mayor Tim Theaker presented Christopher with a Certificate of Achievement recognizing him for his hard work.

 “In recognition of your outstanding achievement of constructing outdoor furniture for Richland County Children Services and completing all requirements of your Eagle Scout project. Your dedication, citizenship and distinguished service to God  and your Country are highly commendable and applauded by the citizens of this community,” said Theaker.

To become an Eagle Scout, the Scout must fulfill requirements in the areas of leadership, service, and outdoor skills before his eighteenth birthday.

Completing an Eagle Scout Project is part of becoming an Eagle Scout.

RCCS employees thanked Christopher and Troop 113 for the bench and swing set.

 “The project provides an opportunity for the Scout to demonstrate leadership of others while performing a project for the benefit of the entire community,” said Scout Master Roy Williams. “This project took a total of 18 hours to complete. “Christopher managed the project with our troop from the initial planning to the blue prints and completion. Lowe’s and Home Depot provided the materials for the project.”
