Noah Jeffries, a member of Boy Scout Troop 59, is collaborating with the City and Ecology Landscaping & Reclamation to earn his Eagle Scout Badge - the highest honor a Boy Scout can receive.

To earn the rank of Eagle, a scout must earn at least 21 merit badges and demonstrate leadership and community service by organizing and carrying out an Eagle project.  For his project, Jeffries will beautify the green space islands in front of the Hewes Avenue Parking Building.

All three islands will be upgraded with landscaping, lighting and flagpoles displaying the American, State and City flags. 

Mayor Catherine Goings stated, “It’s encouraging to see Eagle Scouts take on beautification projects within our downtown community.  Noah’s timing could not have been better considering all the beautification projects underway in the City in anticipation of the Robinson Grand Performing Arts Center opening Spring 2018.”

Jeffries is currently a junior at Liberty High School.

The City looks forward to seeing this project progress and applauds Noah for his volunteerism and citizenship in his community.

Continue to follow us on Clarksburg, City Hall and as we interview Noah and watch the project progress.
