Rossford's raising Eagle Scouts PDF Print E-mail

ROSSFORD - Four Rossford High School students, along with one junior high school student, recently attained the rank of Eagle Scout.  
Brandon and Christian Goldsmith, Chris Schaffer, and Michael Korotanyi are seniors at Rossford High School. Evan Taylor is an eighth-grade student at Rossford Junior High School.
The Eagle Scout rank is the peak of a Scout's achievements. In order to attain the rank of Eagle Scout, each candidate must complete a leadership service project, which provides significant benefit to the local community. This project involves extensive planning and preparation to execute.
Brandon Goldsmith built new cat trees for the Wood County Humane Society. He found the cat trees on the premises were made of wood and covered with carpet - both items that trap dirt, are hard to clean, and spread diseases.
He made the new trees out of PVC pipe and vinyl fabric - all washable and able to keep sanitized.
Christian Goldsmith constructed three doghouses for the humane society. During a visit with his family, he noticed the doghouses were in disrepair, and there were not enough houses for the dogs that were on site.
