William Tobbe, a senior at St. Xavier High School, achieved the rank of Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts of America. Tobbe is a member of Troop 346 of St. Gabriel the Archangel Church.
For his Eagle Scout Leadership Project, Tobbe completed two projects at the nature play area at Jefferson Memorial Forest. He landscaped the boundaries of the area with plants native to Kentucky including winterberries and St. John’s Wort. Additionally, Tobbe also constructed a cedar boundary along the sidewalk to contain the mulch and an entryway.
