Three Concordia Students Scout Eagle Rank

Concordia International School Shanghai is pleased to celebrate the accomplishments of three High School students, Austin Brown, Nicholas Jurgens and Garvin Price, on the achievement of the prestigious Eagle rank! The new Eagle Scouts belong to Troop 969, which is comprised of Scouts from local international schools.

It is estimated that only two percent of boys who enter scouting will persevere to earn the Eagle Scout award. To earn this rank, the Scout must plan, develop and give leadership to others for a service project that benefits a religious institution, school or community. A typical project will take between 125-400 hours from planning to finish.

Austin Brown developed an Elderly Social Center for the Chinese Migrant Catholic Community of the Pudong area. Austin designed the layout of two rooms and coordinated 20 volunteers to clean-out, paint, repair, and refurbish the rooms on the grounds of the local church. Austin collected donations to create a ping-pong/bible study room and activities/social room where the migrant families can gather and socialize.

Nicholas Jurgens’ service project contributed to the literacy of children at the Qidi Migrant School in Shanghai. Nick collected books and donations to establish a library with more than 650 English and Chinese books, puzzles and games.

Garvin Price completed his service project by leading teams to design and create a yearbook for the Shanghai Hai Chuang Elementary Migrant School. The project included establishing and leading teams to take photos and design and publish the yearbook with funds received from sponsors.

“I believe one of the best things Scouting offers is a chance for the boys to develop self-confidence,” states Troop Leader Tom Price.

“Concordia is proud of these exemplary students,” shared Head of School Dr. James Koerschen. “The character they have displayed to become Eagle Scouts is very evident in their lives at Concordia. I am confident they will make many great contributions to the school and our community.”
