BATH — Andrew Spelic, shown at right, a senior at Revere High School and a Scout with Troop No. 385 in Bath, recently earned the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest rank in Boy Scouting.

To earn the rank of Eagle, a Scout must complete a service-oriented project, among other requirements. For his project, Andrew planned and organized the construction of a playground set for his church, Cross Point Alliance Church, in Copley.

According to Andrew’s family, the project was a challenge because the area where the playground was to be installed had poor drainage; after rainfall, the area would remain saturated and muddy.

Andrew, with consultation from a professional engineer (his grandfather, Charles Spelic) designed a means to drain excess rainwater away from the playground area. Many Scouts and a number of church members devoted much time digging, shoveling and moving dirt, and assembling the playground set, according to the Spelic family.

The Eagle Award was bestowed by Scoutmaster Chris Ulinski in a Court of Honor Aug. 10.
