Eagle Scouts Leaving a Lasting Legacy: SAHS Students Transform Elementary Schools with Outdoor Learning Spaces

In the spirit of leadership and community service, two Souderton Area High School students have undertaken the task of creating outdoor learning spaces at two of our SASD Elementary schools as part of their Eagle Scout projects.

Luca Barnebei, an 11th grade student at Souderton Area High School, has been working closely with Ms. Samantha Zimmerman and Mrs. Tamara Ferlick (principal) to create a design and plan for an outdoor classroom that has been the dream of the students, faculty, and staff for years.  

At Franconia Elementary School, Ben Martin, led a group of scouts to build a picnic grove after months of planning.  This space will serve as a multi-functional area for students to come together to learn.



These initiatives align seamlessly with the core values of the Boy Scouts of America, emphasizing the importance of service to the community and leaving a place better than they found it. These spaces will provide the students of EMC and Franconia with spaces to learn outdoors and explore and experience nature right on their own campuses.  We are looking forward to seeing the opportunities these outdoor learning spaces will provide for students for generations to come.
