Stinnette grandson earns Eagle Scout in California PDF Print E-mail

Jacob Real of Boy Scout Troop 700 achieved Scouting’s highest rank, the Eagle Scout Award, on Dec. 29. He is 14 years old, and a freshman at Aliso Niguel High School in Aliso Viejo, Cali.
He has been active in Scouts since 2005, starting out as a Tiger Cub Scout.  Over the years, he has been very involved in all aspects of scouting—leadership, service in the community and outdoor activities.  His favorite activities are hiking, backpacking, camping and fishing.
For his Eagle Scout project, he chose to help out his former middle school by refurbishing their school store. He self-financed the project, using funds that he had earned by selling Scout popcorn over the years.
Young Real spent over 150 hours researching, planning, and building two large mobile shelf cabinets in which to store their products.  With the help of several other scouts from Troop 700, the cabinets were built and delivered to Don Juan Avila Middle School in November.
Along with family members, he also cleaned out the school store, painted the walls, and re-organized their goods into the cabinets.
The Eagle Scout Court of Honor is planned for March 9 at Corpus Christi Catholic Church.
He is the son of David and Pam Real of Aliso Viejo, Cali., and the grandson of Mary Ann Stinnette of Imperial.
