Parker Stergion '23 Road to Eagle Scout

Parker Stergion '23 Road to Eagle Scout

By: Elizabeth Holland, Senior Communications Intern

The Notre Dame Community is proud to spotlight Parker Stergion '23, who is on the way to becoming an Eagle Scout. The rank of Eagle is the highest achievable in the Boys Scouts of America.

Parker has been part of the Boy Scouts with Troop 230 in Yardley, Pennsylvania since 5th grade. He began his scouting career with Cub Scouts in the 1st grade. Parker is currently a Life Scout, which is awarded when you have served in a position of responsibility for six months and performed at least six hours of community service. It is the last rank to receive before Eagle. Parker plans to stay on track to attain the rank of Eagle by summer.

The road to becoming an Eagle Scout is a tremendous undertaking. Requirements include earning many merit badges and completing a final community service project from start to finish including raising funds, designing and then executing the project.

Parker knew he wanted to incorporate his faith into his project idea. He was able to do that after discovering ND Chaplain, Fr. Jason had acquired Stations of the Cross that needed a home. Parker stepped up. Also knowing he wanted to use his Eagle Scout Project to give back to the ND community in a meaningful way, he took the initiative to repurpose the Stations on the Notre Dame campus. 

He started his project this spring, creating and organizing the 14 Stations of the Cross near the ND Grotto, on the pathway to the Msgr. Walter E. Nolan Stadium. Appropriately, he completed the project prior to Easter during the Lenten Season. All are welcome to come spend quite time at Our Lady's Grotto where in addition to the Stations, we have a Rosary Walk that was also the result of a student's Eagle Scout Project.

The Notre Dame community is proud of Parker and wishes him all the best on his journey to becoming an Eagle Scout.
