Alameda Boy Scouts Miles Abadia, Charles Carvalho, Aidan Potts and Mutaaz Whitehead received the Eagle Scout award during a Boy Scouts of America National Court of Honor held last spring. Each Scout, over a several-year commitment, has worked his way through the various ranks earning at least 21 merit badges, served in multiple leadership positions and planned and implemented a community service project to earn Scouting’s highest achievement.

Highlights for these Scouts include monthly camping, backpacking, climbing, watersports outings, attending numerous summer camps, National Scout Jamborees and National Youth Leadership Training. Their Eagle Scout service projects collectively amassed hundreds of hours of planning, leadership and community service benefitting local campuses, non-profits and more. The Scouts are members of Boy Scout 89 — chartered by Oakland Machine Works — which meets at Franklin School on Tuesday evenings and has produced 107 Eagle Scouts since 1967.
