Lutherville: Oregon Ridge improvement leads to Eagle Scout status

Boy Scout Troop 828 welcomed Dylan Schulz into the ranks of Eagle Scout at the troop's Court of Awards on Feb. 9. The event was held at Havenwood Presbyterian Church, which sponsors the troop.

His Eagle project involved replacing seating and mulching the amphitheater at Oregon Ridge Nature Center and replacing a wood shed used to store wood for campfires in the amphitheater.

Schulz, 16, is a sophomore at the Park School. He joined Troop 828 in May 2006 after earning the Arrow of Light from Pack 328.

He has served the troop as a patrol leader, chaplain aide and librarian, among other roles, and most recently was troop guide of the Coyote Patrol.

He completed Brownsea Leadership Training in 2008, attended summer camp with the troop at Haliburton, Ontario, in 2010, and Resica Falls, in Pennsylvania ,in 2006. He was elected to the Order of the Arrow in 2009.

At the Park School, he is active in Habitat for Humanity and plays on the junior varsity soccer and basketball teams. An accomplished musician, he plays guitar, piano and drums.

He is the son and third Eagle Scout of parents Mark and Laurie Schulz, of Cockeysville.

In addition to the Eagle presentation, several boys also received rank advancements. Congratulations to Cliff Buxbaum, Life Scout; Eric Lundberg, Star Scout; and Henry Denoncourt and Matthew Waters, Second Class. Patrol leaders were also elected. They are David Birkenthal, senior patrol leader, and Chris Pittman and Eric Lundberg, patrol leaders.
