The goal of an Eagle Scout project is to benefit an organization in the community other than the Boy Scouts.
Boy Scout Luke Ponder, with Troop 4 out of St. Marks, focused his efforts on Eden Springs Nursing and Rehab Center in Crawfordville.
After looking through several different service projects available in the county for his Eagle Scout project, Ponder, 17, learned of one that involved fixing up the outside area at Eden Springs.
