In addition to his participating in all the outdoor activities typical of Scouts, Andrew enjoys playing soccer (school and recreational), playing video games, and geocaching with his family. His college plans are net yet set, though he hopes to pursue a degree that takes advantage of his love of math and science.
Andrew is a member of Holy Spirit Parish in Soddy-Daisy, where he is a reader as well as a leader in the youth group. He joined the Cub Scouts at Pack 3266 at Burks United Methodist Church in the first grade and worked his way up to Troop 166, where he has been a member for more than six years.
He has served in many leadership positions within the troop, including scribe, librarian, historian, and patrol leader. He is scheduled to participate in a 10-day backpacking trip at Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico this summer, after last summer’s trip was canceled because of COVID.
For his Eagle project, Andrew worked with the Soddy-Daisy Fire Department. He visited more than500 fire hydrants in the city of Soddy-Daisy and graded each one for safety and need for painting. Eventually, 112 hydrants were cleaned and painted during his project, which involved 48 volunteers and 400 hours of work.
