Jacob Sebaugh is a Troop Leader with BSA #507 in Medina. Accompanied by his father Dan, the mature sophomore from Medina High School joined Medina Sunrise Rotary this morning to present his Eagle Scout Project. His Scoutmaster Craig Wrobleski pointed him in the direction of Rotary to build a community partner for his ambitious project.

"What I will be doing for my project," explained Jacob, "is building an ADA approved wheelchair accessible deck/ramp for a neighbor in Medina who has been diagnosed with ALS. This is a debilitating disease that targets the muscles of the human body. Unfortunately, she has become wheelchair bound now.  The ramp's purpose is to add a second escape route if some house emergency were to happen and to also allow her to spend her remaining time with her family and in her own home.

Following Jacob's well-received presentation, Jack Young (Past District Governor and Rotary International's Chair of the Fellowship of Scouting for North, Central and South America) congratulated both Jacob and his father. Jack expressed every confidence in Jacob's future success as he leaves this week for Philmont Scout Ranch - 214 square miles of rugged northern New Mexico wilderness with backpacking treks, horseback cavalcades, and training and service programs - on his Adventure to Eagle.
