BLOOMDALE - Kids enjoying the repainted playground equipment and new basketball hoops at the village park can thank a 16-year-old Boy Scout.
Andrew Nye made the park improvements for his Eagle Scout project. His court of honor ceremony was held April 20.
His Eagle Scout project took place at Rail Road Park. Andrew and his team repainted the playground equipment and hung two new basketball backboards with new rims and nets. They also built a park bench out of Sassafras wood to provide more seating. Andrew also freshened up a pavilion and fencing with new paint.
He has been involved in scouts for seven years. In 2008, Andrew joined the Bloomdale Troop 337. 
The sophomore at Elmwood High School is the son of Dave and Shawna Nye of Bloomdale. Andrew is a member of the Elmwood High School Marching Band, where he is on the drum line. He also participates in track.
He has been on staff for the National Youth Leadership Training for two years. This year he is assistant senior patrol leader.
His scoutmaster is Jay Hahn.
Andrew hopes to attend Ohio State University and wants to audition for the OSU Marching Band and its drum line. His goal is to become a nephrologist, a kidney doctor.
