Troop 222 Menlo Park scouts reach Eagle rank

Michael Mohrman and Webb Ryan Henninger, both residents of Menlo Park and members of Troop 222 at Menlo Park Presbyterian Church, recently became Eagle Scouts. They both joined the troop in February 2005.

Michael joined Troop 222 after earning his Webelos Arrow of Light award in Pack 222, Den 6. He has earned 32 merit badges and special awards, including the World Conservation award, the Mile Swim award, one Fifty-Miler award, and Master Angler award. He has held several leadership positions within the troop. He has also attended five years of scout summer camp.

Michael's Eagle Scout service project involved designing, building, and installing sensory trail stations at BOK Ranch at the Horse Park in Woodside. He says the stations allow "the rider to practice balance, coordination and utilizing the senses." The project involved designing and building six stations offsite, and transporting them to BOK Ranch and installing them there. A total of 216 hours went into the project.

A senior at Sacred Heart Preparatory, Michael plays on the varsity football team and is a member of the school's civic leadership council. He is also a new member of the school's iprov comedy group "kitsch."

A member of the Sacred Heart Society, he is a Uganda chairman, raising money for a sister school in Uganda. He also writes for the school newspaper.
