Troop 4 honors four new Eagle Scouts in La Jolla

Troop 4 recognized four members who achieved the highest rank in scouting during April 30 ceremonies at La Jolla Presbyterian Church. Honored with the Eagle Scout ranking were Jake Linsky, Matthew Schug, Colin Weber and Peter Zeller.

In addition to the litany of requirements necessary to earn Eagle Scout (maintaining leadership positions, attending numerous camping trips and earning a variety of merit badges), each of the four scouts designed and implemented a public service project.

Honored with the Eagle Scout ranking were Matthew Schug, Jake Linsky and Colin Weber (seniors at La Jolla High) and Peter Zeller (senior at Torrey Pines High).

Jake Linsky’s Eagle Scout project involved clearing and bricking an area at La Jolla High School and installing benches for student use.

Matthew Schug’s project was building a portable, modular stage designed as a fishing pier for the Children’s Ministry at La Jolla Presbyterian Church.

Colin Weber’s project benefited the Ronald McDonald House of San Diego as he constructed Adirondack chairs to accommodate guests.

Peter Zeller built a large, redwood kiosk in Balboa Park’s new dog run.

In addition to the advancement of the four Eagle Scouts, Troop 4 also announced its summer schedule. It will offer merit badges in golfing, flyfishing, shot gun shooting, climbing and first aid. The troop also has a good number of outdoor activities and camps planned, such as visiting Catalina Island and Joshua Tree National Park, whitewater rafting in the Kern River, and days at Philmont Scout Ranch.

Furthermore, Troop 4 is active in public service activities, including the upcoming Memorial Day weekend flag ceremony at Fort Rosecrans, the La Jolla Kiwanis breakfast fundraiser, and the Beach and Bay Clean Up.

Troop 4 meets at 6:45 p.m. Mondays at La Jolla Presbyterian Church. To learn more about Troop 4 and scouting, contact Scoutmaster Denis Tarakjian at  — Mark J. Munoz
