Notre Dame is proud to announce that Robert Hulbert, ‘20 has achieved the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest rank attainable in the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). Robert has been in scouting for 10 years, making his way up the ranks, starting in Cub Scouts in 2nd grade, all the way until earning the Eagle Scout rank. As a member of Boy Scout Troop 28 in Lawrenceville, Robert earned more than 20 merit badges in order towards the Eagle rank, including First Aid, Personal Fitness, Family Life, and Camping. Most badges he earned are in the categories of outdoor skills, athletics, and individual knowledge.
Robert’s favorite part of scouting was the different outdoor camping experiences he has had throughout the years. Robert has camped in several places ranging from the beach to the middle of the woods. He went Scouting summer camp every year with his troop for one week. It was a great bonding experience and also where he earned most of his merit badges.
To earn the rank of Eagle Scout, one must also complete a service project. For his project, Robert constructed wooden storage stalls for the furniture warehouse room at Homefront in Lawrenceville. Robert says, “I chose this specific project because Homefront has always been very special to me and I wanted to help them out in a way that would be very impactful.” He planned and led this project from start to finish, learning how to organize and lead a group of people in a tight timeframe to help with the construction of the project. “The project ended very successfully and the Homefront staff was very thankful for the work myself and my volunteers put into the project.”
Robert’s Court of Honor will be held on January 11. Congratulations Robert on this astounding achievement!
