Eagle Scout Project Results in Gaffney Lane Outdoor Improvements


admin - Posted on 14 November 2012

At Gaffney Lane Elementary there is a heavily used trail path to school that would often get very muddy and wet. When Ryan Kozak, Oregon City High School student, heard about the trail and students arriving to school with wet and muddy feet, a community project idea was born. Ryan, a long time Boy Scout, has been involved in many community projects, but helping to improve the Gaffney Lane grounds would be his opportunity to take the lead.

He enlisted the help of fellow scouts and others from the community for his Eagle Scout project to improve the Gaffney Lane grounds. "It wasn't easy to put this project together, but well worth the time. I believe it serves a need in the community and will be used and appreciated for years to come," said Ryan. Under his leadership the trail path was greatly improved and a new park bench was added.

"Ryan and his troop did a great job on the path and bench. He provided a valuable and much appreciated service to Gaffney Lane and our community," said John Olson, Gaffney Lane Principal.

Oregon City School District is an equal opportunity educator and employer.
