Chad Connolly, a member of Boy Scout Troop 497 was awarded the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest given in the Boy Scouts.

Connolly, a senior at East Valley High School, built a raised planting bed for the YMCA Child Watch day care area for his Eagle Scout project. The planting bed has provided a place for the children to have a place of their own to grow and care for plants.

He is the son of Phil and Cindy Connolly of Spokane Valley.

Caleb Knight, a member of Troop 209 was awarded the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest given in the Boy Scouts.

For his project, Knight cleared brush to improve and beautify sites at Farragut State Park. He also cleaned trails, put up two informational signs, a historical theme post, installed fences made from felled trees and installed two metal benches. Using materials provided by the Farragut State Park Rangers, Knight planned and organized the work.

He is a senior at Coeur d’Alene High School and the son of Carl and Pamela Knight of Coeur d’Alene.

Joshua Roderick, a member of Troop 496, received the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest given in the Boy Scouts.

Roderick, a 2010 graduate of West Valley High School, built an Iguana Cage for the West Valley Outdoor Learning Center, for his Eagle Scout project. His project included research to build an Iguana cage, along with securing donations from the Bighorn Foundation and Timberland Landscaping. Roderick purchased parts that weren’t donated and organized help from adults and other Scouts. He also coordinated with the fifth-grade class at Pasadena Park Elementary to put painted hand prints on the back wall of the cage.

He is the son of Sam and Cari Roderick of Spokane.
